**Lombard Hobbies Recommendation - As modelers ourselves we highly recommend ONLY running DCC on DCC systems and DC on DC systems, regardless of 'Dual-Mode' capability. This gives optimum performance and safeguards the unit from possible damage from running on a different system than originally intended and from any inexperienced operator errors. 

Prototype History

In 2002, GE released the first GEVo, a new series of locomotives that would replace the AC4400CW and Dash 9-44CW.  The first two models were the ES44DC and ES44AC.  The ES44C4 followed a few years later.

The new models were designed to meet the stricter diesel locomotive emissions standards imposed by Environmental Protection Agency regulations.  The EPA ‘Tier’ emissions standards are a series, or Tiers, of allowable emissions levels based upon a locomotive’s date of manufacture.  In 2005, Tier 2 took effect followed by Tier 3 in 2010 and Tier 4 took in 2015.

All of the major railroads including BNSF, Canadian National, Canadian Pacific, CSX, Norfolk Southern, and Union Pacific have fleets with 100s of units. Florida East Coast, Ferromex, Iowa Interstate, and Kansas City Southern also operate ES44s.  In addition, 131 were built as lease units for Citirail.

The ES44 has become the best-selling diesel locomotive of all time.
