I always enjoy capturing a nice roster shot of a C44-9W that still wears the original Heritage scheme. These units are often referred to as "Goat Boats". The "Goat" reference comes from the fact that this paint scheme is very close to Great Northern's paint scheme, and the logo for Great Northern included a goat. The "Boat" reference comes from the fact that GE unit were once referred to as "U-Boats" as they had a "U" designation in their models in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.
