Kato #176-8411DCC N EMD SD70ACe – Union Pacific “George Bush Library and Museum” with DCC Installed
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.
George Bush #4141:
Named after the 41st president of the United States and owned and operated by the Union Pacific as part of its SD70ACe Heritage fleet, the George Bush Library SD70ACe #4141 incorporates elements from Air Force One’s wings and tail decorations, with the sweeping lines of forward motion representing progress. You might see the real locomotive because over the next decade, UP 4141 is expected to operate for at least one million miles.
