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 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.

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.
