On October 18, 2005, at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, Texas, the Union Pacific Railroad unveiled locomotive 4141. It was only the sixth time in UP history that a diesel had been decorated in colors other than the road's signature Armour Yellow paint. Among the artifacts on display was the original golden spike that had marked the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in 1869.When rail traffic declined in the 2008 financial crisis, 4141 went into storage as part of the UP's Heritage Fleet. Baggage car Council Bluffs carried his flag-draped casket, with the doors open to allow the thousands at trackside to pay their respects. To allow others to honor the former president, vice-president, congressman, ambassador, CIA director and naval aviator, engine 4141 later went on a system-wide Union Pacific tour. Railroads viewed this as the perfect building block for multi-engine lashups to power virtually any size train. Development of the next generation of power would be born not out of railroad needs, but due to government regulations. All electrical wires are on the right side of the locomotive and all piping is on the left, with most pipes and wires routed under the frame so they can be serviced by a man standing outside the engine - rather than crawling around at the bottom of the engine room. 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. And in DCS operation, you can easily double- or even triple-head an SD70ACe with any other M. If you're looking for realism and a lot of fun in a modern locomotive, it doesn't get any better than this!
