I just learned yesterday from a trusted RR employee (Sunday) that CSX is buying 120 GEVO's to be delivered late this year and early next year.
Has anyone else heard this?

This is welcome news from a company who I thought had given up on GE completely.

yes, CSX has placed an order with GE for some of the new GEVO locomotives. To be specific, they have ordered 100 ES44DC's (yes DC traction units). This is confirmed. They are to be delivered this year though I'm not sure when. Have heard starting in May, but can't confirm that.
