The powerful SD70ACe is a popular sight across the US freight railroad network and is now available for Train Simulator in six attractive heritage liveries of Union Pacific.
Production of the SD70ACe version began in 2004 as General Motors’ response to the popular GE Dash 9-44CW. Originally, the diesel freight locomotive was an upgrade to the SD70M and SD70MAC, designed to meet new emission regulations and with minor external differences in body shape. As with recent US diesels, the SD70ACe was also fitted with a full width ‘comfort’ cab and is a popular sight across the US.
More than 1,200 examples have been built so far for a number of US railroads, including BNSF, CSX, Union Pacific and Norfolk Southern.
Through the years, a series of mergers have expanded Union Pacific’s track network, opening up new routes and services across the US. In celebration of these fallen flag railroads, Union Pacific repainted six SD70ACe locomotives in attractive heritage liveries during the mid-2000s, including those of the Denver & Rio Grande Western, Missouri Pacific, Western Pacific, Missouri-Kansas-Texas, Chicago & North Western, and Southern Pacific. These locomotives regularly haul freight across the UP network and form part of the current UP fleet.
The locomotives are Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the Union Pacific Heritage SD70ACes on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam.
Scenarios are available on Steam Workshop online and in-game. Train Simulator’s Steam Workshop scenarios are free and easy to download, adding many more hours of exciting gameplay. With scenarios being added daily, why don’t you check it out now!
