Hey guys I FINALLY got a BNSF Gevo, this one is in ho scale from intermountain railway company. I got this intermountain es44ac from Maders Trains (maderstrains.com) at a great price and incredibly fast shipping.

I have been wanting to get one of these since September 2008, when I took a picture of a freight train out in colorado. (That picture is my wallpaper on my channel) its a BNSF es44ac

This intermountain BNSF ES44ac model is Fantastic! It has all wheel electrical pickup, and a high performance motor. The weight is good, but not excellent. It will take an 18 inch radius curve without any trouble at all. My ES44AC is in BNSF, and has the correct details to match the prototype. This means the four window cab, 2 vents behind the cab, and lastly a rear light mounted in the middle of the frame.

There is a lot of detail to this model. The intermountain GEVO has metal grab irons and windshield wipers. Other details are the piping molded into the frame, wind deflectors, sun shades, MU cables and other hoses. Also, it features lighted ditch lights, number boards, and headlights, all separately controlled.

Complaints:

I have a few complaints about the model. First off a grab iron is missing, but I think thats a very rare case because all the other intermountain GEVOs out have not reported any problems. Also, the trucks are a bit wobbly, so the locomotive can tip to the side. The lights are a bit dim, ive seen worse, but also have seen a lot better. Lastly, the wires that take the power from the wheels into the board is visible. None of the really matters when its on the track though, overall id say the locomotive was made very well.

Thanks for watching and reading!
