Athearn HO scale SD70ACe with Tsunami2
In 1943, employees of the Union Pacific RR agreed to an extra deduction in their paychecks to buy War Bonds during World War II. The railroad collected $379,000 for the cause, and in response, the U.S. Army Air Corps named a B-17 bomber “Spirit of the Union Pacific.”

In 2017, Union Pacific unveiled SD70ACe no. 1943, The Spirit, as part of a Salute the Military Tour. Athearn has now released an HO scale Genesis series model decorated in The Spirit’s unique paint scheme, and equipped with a SoundTraxx Tsunami2 dual-mode decoder as an option.
