Description

Prototype Information:

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 popular N scale SD70Ace with “Nose Headlights” is returning with a new rerun of Union Pacific’s #1943 “The Spirit”!

Union Pacific #1943 “The Spirit”

Union Pacifics Locomotive No. 1943, The Spirit, is the 16th commemorative locomotive introduced in the 155-year-old companys history. The Spirit honors the United States armed forces and the men and women filling their ranks. Created in collaboration with Union Pacific veterans, the locomotive illustrates the railroads connection to the thousands of veterans who helped build America through the centuries.

 

Every detail in The Spirits trade dress incorporates a piece of each U.S. armed forces branch. The Spirits front is symbolic of Air Force Silver, and the blue stripe is a reflection of the former Strategic Air Commands nose sash. The lettering inside the sash is the original handdrawn font used on the B-17. It is followed by the Coast Guards Racing Stripe and the Navys Battleship Gray, which frames Union Pacifics traditional American flag. The military camouflage is a nod to the Army and Marines.

 

As the train passes by, the final message on the tail is dedicated to U.S. prisoners of war and those missing in action, featuring the POW/MIA symbol and its motto, You Are Not Forgotten.
