The tier 4 has been called the locomotive of the future. GE has gone through several iterations of the GEVO’s during the last decade, working toward the Tier 4, which meets the current Government emissions standard for locomotives. At great cost they have developed this eco-friendly transportation giant that is already in service all across North America. Five major railroads are currently running the Tier 4 and other primary and secondary users are expected to follow.
The Intermountain Tier 4 has been completely retooled to capture the highest level of accuracy.
This all-new model features finely molded parts, railroad specific details, prototype based color representation with laser sharp painting and printing inlcuding the numerous miniature labels accurately represented. Our all-new Tier 4 drive is smooth, heavy (approx. 1.6 lbs), and powerful with an all new larger motor.
