Every time I get in the cab of a new model GE, it reminds me of a 1985 Chrysler, all plastic and cheap. They also seem to set themselves on fire more often than EMD products. The latter may just be because there are more of them now than there are EMD's. They pull better than a comparable EMD, but are slower off the line. They are slightly more fuel efficient, which is probably why the bean counters like them, and the "rolling forest fire" aspect aside, they have pretty high unit availability figures (reliable). If you get the chance to ride in one that's been on the road for a few years, you'll notice they seem to have more than their share of squeaks and rattles, generally more so than a comparable EMD. I haven't ridden in a GEVO yet, and it will probably be a (very) long time before one gets donated to the local railroad museum. That, and the fact cab ride invites are getting scarce will probably keep me out of the cab of one for a while to make a comparison.
