N EMD SD70M Union Pacific "Flag" #4848

$120.00

Introduced in 1992, EMD’s SD70M was a 4000 horsepower locomotive that rode on EMD’s new steerable truck design, known as the HTCR-II radial truck. This new truck allowed the locomotive to transfer its power to the rails more efficiently, which in turn enabled two SD70 series locomotives to pull a train that would have taken three SD40-2s to pull. Union Pacific was the biggest purchaser of SD70M units when they were introduced, buying more than 1400 individual locomotives, one of the largest locomotive batch purchases in history.
