    Also what about an option on the vote that says ‘no’ . By only giving an option of yes people can’t anonymously share their opinion

    Honestly, I'd reather see another more mainline oriented UP route added, with different locos that could sub onto cane creek rather than loco DLCs specifically oriented to cane creek.

    One thing about Union Pacific SD70ACe's is that they have 2 different variations of them (Like how they have different variations of AC44's)

    The earlier orders had a roof mounted headlight, and no Isolated Cab option. These models are also used for the Heritage Fleet, 4141, and 1111.

    The later orders have a nose mounted headlight, and come with an Isolated Cab. UP 1943 is the only special unit from these orders. The last 273 of these are classified as SD70AH's due to their heavier ballast weight.

    I would rather see some of the four axle locomotives like the GP60 they use on the route before any more six axles.

    eg. GP60 1019

    e.g.

    I second this. An SD70 would be better suited to some UP mainline if we ever get one, I think.

    The UP GP60 could also be used on the Peninsula Corridor. Plus a CSX version would be great for Sand Patch Grade. The SD70ACe is a fantastic idea, too. The D&RGW Heritage engine needs to be included in a UP SD70ACe pack (along with the other 5 locos).

    Excellent idea and for 2016-present SD70ACE Tier 4 3000s Union Pacific only 3012 or 3013 have the flag like 8875. Reskin turns them into CSX 8900s for Base Game Sand Patch Grade which is identifiable on the loading screen AC4400CW.
