Default General Electric Tier 4 ES44

General Electric release their Tier 4 ES44 a Couple weeks ago. Any comments on this locomotive? In my personal opinion, I think it is quite ugly.

Do you mean the paint scheme, or the shape of the engine? The engine looks, well, GE-ish, no better or worse than any other recent model. The paint scheme. I think it's fine, not ugly, not great, I'd put it a bit above average, but probably solely because I happen to like the color combination; were it, say, purple and green, I'd mark it down.

I like the paint scheme. I am referring to "camel" hump in the middle of the locomotive. That is what I think it ugly.

Unfortunately, I think the wave in the paint scheme only serves to emphasize the camel hump. I wish someone would come up with a way to make the radiators on these things look better, too.

I like the paint scheme, however I wish they could have made the engine look a little better. I think the 'hump' is a bit odd looking. I think we could combine what you want with what I want. Put the Tier 4 Equipment in the radiator and make it look better.

I've always said that the Dash9s are better looking.
That paint scheme is horrible...
