The SD70ACe is Electro-Motive Diesel’s hope for the future. While designed to meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s Tier-2 emissions requirements that took effect on January 1, 2005, this replacement for the SD70MAC also seems to have a higher purpose: to recapture the lead in North American locomotive sales that EMD lost to General Electric in 1987.

Under the hood beats a third-generation model 710 diesel with 4300 horsepower; only slight modifications were needed to make the model 710 meet new emission standards. With 5000 such motors in service worldwide and a reputation for dependability, EMD reasoned that shop crews would prefer familiar technology.

Other than the prime mover, however, virtually every element of the SD70ACe has been rethought to create a 21st-century locomotive. Ergonomics were a prime consideration. The engine’s angular nose offers the crew far better visibility than most other locomotives, and the cab is comfortable for engineers of almost any size. Digital screens provide a range of information on what is happening both inside the locomotive and out on the road. The cab easily accommodates a crew of three – an important factor in a modern world without cabooses. And there is, of course, a cup holder for the engineer.

The RailKing Imperial SD70ACe is accurately decorated in modern motive power paint schemes. Our near-scale model is a full 17″ in length, yet operates comfortably on O-31 curves. Under the hood of the Proto-Sound 3.0 version is the same sound and control system found in our more expensive Premier model of this locomotive – complete with sounds recorded from an actual Union Pacific SD70ACe. Additional Imperial features include operating diesel exhaust smoke and flashing ditch lights. If you’re looking for realism and a lot of fun at a RailKing price, it doesn’t get any better than this!

Did you know?

IntelliTrain, an option on the SD70ACe, uses cellular and GPS technology to allow a railroad’s maintenance department to monitor operating conditions and problems as they occur out on the road – making diagnosis and repair considerably easier.
