In the modern world of railroading, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe sees a large majority of traffic of Intermodal trains that cross the Western and Mid-Western United States constantly working as part of a new era of railroading. BNSF’s answer to the increase in Intermodal traffic was the constant ordering of GE Evolution Series locomotives. Although the ES44DC is now behind compared to the new ES44C4s, the ES44DCs still run in heavy numbers on BNSFs mainlines, many show age, and that is what this product does. It provides Trainz users with the ES44DC of today, one of years of service – a unit that has mileage. The price is grand, coming in at just $10 (as of November 21st, 2013), you get 3 for the price of 1, a great value. The quality is somewhat lagging compared to JR’s newest offerings as these are reskins of the original ES44DCs, so the cab interior is not custom and the scripts are a little under featured, but they still look amazing and have the minimum of scripting required. Overall, I am happy I purchased these units. I use them often on my modern routes as they have become the flagship icon of BNSF today, as the Genesis units are for Amtrak.

I’d give this six or more stars if i could!!!!!! I don’t even like BNSF or GEs!
This product is AMAZING! I would HIGHLY recommend it! And to top THAT off, the customer service is insane! You write your problem, and they get back to you in less than five minutes? Amazing! ALL of JR’s stuff, free and pay has been worth the money. I would recommend some of the newer things, too. Like the C44-9Ws, and the SD70Ms, and C40-8s! Take those F-units for a spin, too! Or the SD40-2s! The possibilities are endless!!!! Go Jointed Rail!

JR’s level of “Mediocre” has always been better then anyone elses anyway…. However, Id have to agree with everything the other poster said. These would be INCREDIBLE models with just a step further into the realm of their usual excellence. However, without the custom Cab in particular, I feel like these models were just built to be “Fill Units” behind the locomotive of your choice. Something you grabbed off the Extra Power Track before leaving the yard or the Helper Track before the grade, which is too bad because units almost identical to these are in use all over their system….
Still, as I said, they’re better then anyone elses to date, and these see alot of use comparatively when I run BNSF anywhere.

Okay, maybe these are not ‘perfect’ models but they look great and you can’t beat the price. One more thing! You get nice variety with this 3 pack.

I’m really enjoying these units I played around with last night. Stayed up far too late as a result checking out JR content I purchased. I digress, I love how these three units show more age than other content you see; which is usually picture-perfect. Well these are too but in a more real world way. It’s definitely well worth it with the value of the three-pack!

I give it 4 stars only because of the lack of a custom cab. Give this locomotive one of Jointed Rail’s great custom cabs and your all set! Loco runs great and looks good to.
