The 1000th locomotive was an ET44 AC Evolution Series for Canadian National Railway (CN), which meets US Environmental Agency Tier 4 emissions standards.

The milestone is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team here in Fort Worth," says Mr Richard Simpson, vice-president of GE Transportation. "In less than four years, this team helped start up the GE Manufacturing Solutions facility and built 1000 high-quality, competitive locomotives for our customers."

The 92,903m² facility is now GE Transportation's primary manufacturing site for Evolution Series locomotives.
