    The SD70ACes have been made for TS2019 before in several liveries. I'd like to propose the newer Tier IV SD70ACe-T4s in the following liveries:
    -EMD Prototypes: #1501-1505, #1601-1602, 1605-1610
    -BNSF SD70ACeP4-T4 (Model w/ 4 powered axles): #1603-1604
    -NS: #2000-2009
    -CSX: #8900-8909
    -UP: #3000-3099
    These diesels should be sold as a pack. The set would come with all versions of the engine and a selection of modern rolling stock in several road names. The cars could include grain hoppers, 20,000 gallon tank cars, auto racks, intermodal cars, coal gondolas, etc.

    Those are ss70iac's. They have Tier 4 axle and traction motors but not the cab and engine. Yeah it kinda upset me.

    what I don't understand is why didn't Dove Tail add a CSX SD70Ace to the pack,csx only uses 9 of the 19 units that they own because they hate them but still they make the SD70MAC for CSX when NS has SD70MACs to that they bought from UP years ago Dove Tail makes No sense of what dlc they release 8779184818_a7f8a56b38_z.jpg

    The sd70acc is a rebuilt sd70. And there either plain Norfolk Southern black and white or 1800 and 1801 are yellow and grey. The ac44c6m has blue and black and the ac44c6cf is red.

    CSX don't have any sd70ace's. Norfolk Southern don't have sd70mac's either. They bought sd90mac's and rebuilt them to sd70acu's. And they made the sd80mac for CSX not the sd70mac.

    If you look up CSX has 19 SD70Ace's they only use 9 of them check it yourself I don't know were your getting your info from but it's wrong.Secondly yeah I understand I messed up on the post about NS having SD70macs when I meant SD80Mac's.I believe your wrong on ( And they made the sd80mac for CSX not the sd70mac.) And i'll prove it Conrail was the only company to buy SD80Macs EVER !!! Chicago and North Western Railway ordered 15, along with Canadian Pacific, but the orders were canceled originally later when Conrail was sold so were all it's units including the SD80Macs which Norfolk Southern received 17 units (numbered 7200–7216) while CSX got 13 (800–812, being renumbered to 4590–4602).Norfolk Southern only has 1 SD80Mac in service at the moment of 2019.CSX modded there SD80Mac's that they got from Conrail but never ordered any 80Mac's

    If you want to say that CSX has SD80Macs now only because they got them from Conrail then you might just as well say that Norfolk Southern ordered SD60M Cyclopes when they actually got them from BNSF which BNSF got them from BN so are they really NS units NO

    Just found out Jointed Rail maybe making the SD70Ace-T4 for train sim.If you don't have there SD40-2 standard cab unit for Train Sim 2019 your missing out so worth it especially with the bundle pack with 3 different units Conrail,Conrail Quality & Norfolk Southern which are all different in small ways from horns to interiors of the cabs and its Jointed Rail Quality so you know your getting great

    CSX traded there sd80macs to Norfolk Southern for sd40-2s. They also returned all of there sd70ace's to progress rail and are being leased. CSX don't currently have sd80macs or sd70ace's. And they have 23 sd80macs in service not 1. You my friend have old information.
