The EMD SD70 is a series of diesel-electric locomotives produced by Electro-Motive Diesel in response to the GE Dash 9-44CW. Atlanta, February 12, 2011: Athearn introduced pre-production samples of a Union Pacific's DDA40X diesel locomotive today at the World's Greatest Hobby Show in Atlanta. Introduced in April 1969, the prototype was nicknamed the Centennial locomotive in honor of the 100th anniversary of the golden spike ceremony in Promontory, Utah. I'm working with a person who is at the show to see if we can get some more photos, but I don't know if this will happen.

Production commenced in late 1992 and since then over 4,000 units have been produced; most of these are the SD70M and SD70MAC models.
Measuring in excess of 14-inches overall, the HO scale Genesis series model faithfully replicates the distinctive prototype.


The unique combination of a cowl-type cab from an FP45 with a DD-style car body combine to make the 98-foot monster unmistakable. All locomotives of this series are hood units with C-C trucks.Prior to the SD70ACe and SD70M-2 models, all SD70 models were delivered with the self-steering HTCR radial truck. Details on pricing and availability of the Athearn model are expected to be announced soon. The prototype was powered by two EMD 16-cylinder model 645E3A prime movers generating a total of 6600 horse power. The radial truck allows the axles to steer in curves which reduces wear on the wheels and railhead.
An HO model of the DDA40X released by Bachmann several years ago is no longer in production. With the introduction of the SD70ACe and SD70M-2 models, EMD introduced a new bolsterless non-radial HTSC truck as the standard truck for these models in an effort to reduce costs.


AC motors, while simpler and more reliable than DC motors, require expensive inverters to generate a variable-frequency AC signal, raising the locomotive's purchase cost substantially.
The majority of SD70MAC models were produced with the 4,000 horsepower EMD 710 prime mover while later units are rated at 4,300 horsepower and feature EMD SD45-style flared radiators.
They were also offered with a head-end power generation system for passenger trains.The SD70MAC is no longer produced due to EPA regulations and has been replaced by the SD70ACe. It was purchased by Burlington Northern Railroad (now BNSF Railway), BNSF, Conrail (units now owned by CSX), CSX, Transportacion Ferroviaria Mexicana (TFM; units now owned by Kansas City Southern Railway (KCS)), and the Alaska Railroad.
