Brazil finally gets a taste of GEVO power from WABTEC.

For thos who want to see the video go to youtube and search SUZANO ES44ACi

Actually, Brazil has Evolution series GE's since Vale mining ordered the ES58ACi to Carajas railroad (2009) and GE of Brazil built the ES43BBi (2014) to some narrow gauge costumers here years ago. These new units to Rumo are the first "ES44's" in Brazil, not the first GEVO's.

Yes that's right. I forgot about the ES58's, and ES43's. Thanks for the correction.
