N EMD SD70ACe UP (SP Heritage) #1996 w/ ESU LokSound DCC


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.

Locomotive #1996 is painted in the "Daylight" colors of the Southern Pacific railroad, its distinct striped red, orange, and black an unmistakable homage. It bears the road number 1996, the year the SP became a part of the Union Pacific.

    Model Features
  • Exceptional and crisp molding to accentuate the distinct angular lines of the nose and high dynamic brake
  • Powerful Kato mechanism powered by a 5-pole flywheel motor and featuring a 9 3/4" minimum turning radius.

This Locomotive has an ESU LokSound DCC Sound board pre-installed to ensure the system is ready to run on your digitally operated system. Limited quantity available - this is only available direct from the Kato USA online store.

This locomotive will come programmed to a 4 digit address (the road number) - this may cause issues when trying to run this engine on an Analog(DC) system. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
