    DTG, Please include the various UP heritage paint schemes for the SD70ACE as playable liveries.

    In fact UP 1943 has hauled the UP business train around horshoe curve, could make a crossover.

    I'd want the UP Heritage SD70ACes, but I really want to see the new SD70AH-T4s.

    IMO it would depend on which SD70ACe model DTG decides to do, since UPs Heritage fleet was the original orders with no ISO cabs and high headlights, while UP1943 was painted on the heavier SD70AH model, with an ISO cab, nose headlight, more ballast weight, and other small features.

    4141 it's actually the funeral train locomotive for George Herbert Walker Bush therefore it's outside of his Museum. The old paint for it was Union Pacific yellow.

    It didn’t just pull his funeral train. It was painted in to that scheme in 2005 as a promotion for his Presidential Library. In fact George Bush himself ran this locomotive! When they showed it to, him he asked to drive it.UP stored it for several years, and saved it for hauling his funeral train. It’s an interesting story. After his funeral it toured the entire UP system, some of it with 1943. When it was delivered to the Bush library it was brought in by Big Boy 4014.
