In 1943, in the midst of World War II, thousands of Union
Pacific employees voluntarily increased their War Bond payroll
deductions to fund the construction of a heavy bomber. To honor their
efforts, a new Boeing B-17 was christened Spirit of the Union Pacific.
Nearly three-quarters of a century later, in October 2017, the Union
Pacific unveiled SD70AH diesel No. 1943 (an SD70ACe with extra weight
to improve traction), in tribute to the United States armed forces.

Named after that original B-17, No. 1943’s paint scheme was
created in collaboration with UP veterans and honors every branch of
the U.S. armed forces. The front of the locomotive is painted in Air
Force Silver, emblazoned with the blue “nose sash” of the former
Strategic Air Command. The lettering inside the sash is the original
hand-drawn font used on the Spirit B-17. In contrast, all engine
numbers are in a military-style block font. Behind the cab is the Coast
Guard’s “Racing Stripe,” followed by the Navy’s Battleship Gray,
framing the Union Pacific’s traditional American flag. The military
camouflage in the radiator area honors the Army and Marines, and the
final message on the rear of the engine is the POW/MIA symbol and its
motto, “You Are Not Forgotten.”

Upgrade your railroad to 21st century power with our new
RailKing One-Gauge SD70ACe, the first One-Gauge model of this
fourth-generation pioneer. Our accurate, full 1:32 scale model is
loaded with added-on details, including separate grab irons and
windshield wipers, hand-painted crew figures, see-through metal grilles
and moveable roof fans.

Under the hood are powerful twin motors and our Proto-Sound
3.0 sound and control system, featuring sounds recorded from an actual
Union Pacific SD70ACe; conventional and DCS control as well as full
28-function DCC operation; variable intensity diesel exhaust smoke; and
LED lighting effects that include directionally controlled headlights,
cab illumination, and flashing ditch lights. And in DCS operation, you
can easily double- or even triple-head an SD70ACe with any other M.T.H.
steam or diesel locomotive. If you’re looking for realism and a lot of
fun in a modern locomotive, it doesn’t get any better than this!
