UP 1995 Heritage Unit

This locomotive is one of six Union Pacific SD70ACe units painted in the colours of a “fallen flag” carrier that has since been absorbed by UP — in this case, the Chicago & Northwestern. (The other five: D&RGW, MKT, MP, SP, WP.) Each unit’s number reflects the date of amalgamation. Some argue that UP is doing this to keep old paint schemes in circulation so that they can charge model manufacturers royalties for them. Photo by A Bob’s Life in Pictures.
