    Got my first pair of new UP SD70AH-T4's on an eastbound loaded coal train in SE Cedar Rapids today.

    UP 3025 and 3022, waiting for westbound traffic to clear #2 track near Bertram, IA.
    Two features make the loco different from the SD70AH--1]The windshield is angled. 2]Radiator wings supposed to be a bit smaller......or is it larger. o_O

    Beauty's!! (y)

    Up here in Seattle, basically at the end of a long branchline, we only see the beaters and old, dirty units. Nice to see something clean from Uncle Pete!

    And I like the look of the old "Centennial" windshield too!
    I think it's the same style as the old F45/FP45 as well.

    Everything looks too clean! Are you sure this isn't someone's layout? (y)

    Somehow the front end makes me remember when Dodge brought the Ram back...

    The teardrop windows aren't quite as pronounced as on the old full width nose units and the radiator is bigger. UP had put a stop on units due to some teething problems. I heard deliveries started back up last week. So I expect you'll see more. Most are likely join their GE counterparts on the I5 corridor.

    Question of taste. Myself I prefer the straight windshield, such as on the "true" SD70ACe/M2s. :)

    But it's a nice engine anyway.

    I prefer the teardrop windshields too. Maybe I'm just an incurable nostalgic...:)
