Detailed Information

NEW FEATURES:

  • All-new LED lighting
  • Rubber MU hoses for durability

Since 2005, railroads have been unveiling heritage schemes on their locomotives. This has inspired the model railroad and railfan community to create many “what-if” and heritage paint schemes of their own. We have enjoyed seeing these realistic interpretations of what could have been and have decided to create some of our own. We are proud to announce a new line of legendary railroad paint schemes from the past-with a modern twist-starting with our Genesis ES44AC.

Introducing “Legendary Liveries”—where inspiration becomes reality.

SP FEATURES:

  • Antenna Dome
  • Large front snowplow
  • Nose door without window
  • High number boards
  • 3-window cab side windows
  • Desktop control stand
  • Sunshades
  • Salem air filter
  • Nathan P3 air horn on bracket
  • Rear brake wheel
  • Hi-adhesion trucks
  • Low rear sand filler
  • High rear vertical headlight

First appearing on the road’s F3 units, the Black Widow scheme is one of SP’s most iconic. Many enthusiasts long for this historical paint scheme to return into the heritage program.

CB&Q FEATURES:

If the Hill roads had never merged, you could see one of these CB&Q GEVOs on the rails today, rushing freight “Everywhere West”.

ATSF FEATURES:

The classic SuperFleet Warbonnet scheme lives on—as if the Santa Fe had never died.

AMTK, ATSF, CB&Q FEATURES:

  • Antenna Dome
  • Narrow front snowplow
  • Nose door with window
  • High number boards
  • 4-window cab side windows
  • Desktop control stand
  • Sunshades
  • Salem air filter
  • Rear brake wheel
  • Hi-adhesion trucks
  • High rear sand filler
  • Low rear vertical headlight

Affectionately known as the “Pepsi Can” scheme, our Amtrak ES44ACs wear this popular paint scheme that appeared on the road’s Dash 8-32BWH locomotives.

CHESSIE & WM FEATURES:

  • Antenna Dome
  • Large front snowplow
  • Nose door without window
  • High number boards
  • 3-window cab side windows
  • Desktop control stand
  • Sunshades
  • Different styles of air horns as appropriate to the prototype road
  • Rear brake wheel
  • Steerable trucks
  • Low rear sand filler
  • High rear vertical headlight

One of the most eye-catching paint schemes and iconic logos of the 1970s era was the Chessie system’s outline of the C&O’s famous “Chessie” the kitten logo. The Chessie System did not own any locomotives or other rolling stock, persé; equipment would be placed on the roster of one of the integrated railroads. While all three companies shared a common paint scheme, actual ownership of the equipment was denoted by the reporting marks C&O, B&O, or WM.

Some enthusiasts wish for a CSX heritage program that would resurect the classic Chessie System paint scheme. As far as “Legendary Liveries” is concerned, the cat is back, pulling coal out of the Appalachians again!

WM FEATURES:

Picture this modern GEVO, wearing WM’s famous Circus scheme, waiting to depart Hagerstown with yet another coal train. That is the inspiration behind this model. This is another classic scheme enthusiasts would love to see resurected. Initially applied to 2nd generation diesels by the WM in the 1960s, the classy lines look right at home on a modern GEVO.

BN FEATURES:

  • Antenna Dome
  • Large front snowplow
  • Nose door with window
  • High number boards
  • 4-window cab side windows
  • Desktop control stand
  • Sunshades
  • Salem air filter
  • Nathan P3 air horn
  • Rear brake wheel
  • Hi-adhesion trucks
  • High rear sand filler
  • Low rear vertical headlight

What if Grinstein Green had never happened? BN’s Cascade Green scheme looks right at home on this modern ES44AC. Trains Magazine in 2012 posted a “Trains of Thought” entitled “BNSF: It’s time for heritage locomotives” diving into the possible heritage paint schemes of the railroad. The BN in Cascade Green was a natural fit. We were inspired by the artist’s rendition but decided to get creative with our own version.
