The SD70ACe is the latest in the line of EMD's "70" locomotives, an evolution of the SD70MAC, although its radiator design harkens more to that of the SD80/90 body. The SD70ACe has been designed to fit the latest EPA standards and regulations, and sports 4300 horsepower.
The Union Pacific has currently put in the largest purchase order for these units, and as a display of respect for the railroads it has incorporated, has produced six "Heritage" style painted locomotives with road numbers designated by the year they were merged into the UP.
Heritage units will be specially painted with their unique paint schemes to honor their respective railroads
Newly designed prototype-accurate bolsterless non-radial HTSC truck and five chime airhorn
Exceptional and crisp molding to accentuate the distinct angular lines of the nose and high dynamic brake
Powerful five-pole KATO motor with dual brass flywheels
Directional Headlight and illuminated, preprinted numberboards
Kato magnetic knuckle coupler
DCC Friendly mechanism ready for drop-in decoder installation
The UP is one of the largest original buyers of the new SD70ACe units, and continues to add more to its roster.
