CHICAGO — Indian Railways will soon sport new red-and-yellow GE locomotives. The paint scheme reflects India’s symbolic colors of red and yellow.

According to a GE news release, the color red represents energy while yellow exhibits freshness. The design symbolizes the speed of modernization and the connection between technology and performance. GE managers announced the new paint scheme would be displayed on the company’s India-built Evolution Series locomotives.

In Nov. 2015, the locomotive manufacturer announced a $2.5-billion contract to build and maintain a fleet of 1,000 diesel locomotives for the sub-continent's railroad system for the next 11 years. The locomotives were built in the Indian state of Bihar.
