I want to say that all SD70Aces built after a certain date would have this cab, but I am not sure. The main difference on these will be the cab design will differ in that it will have the details of the prototype, along with some new carbody changes that came on the later deliveries.
The major difference is the nose mounted headlight and the visible lines where the cab is separated from the frame (as seen in the photos above).
I hope MTH will release the CN 8800 and 8900 series SD70M-2, the later orders of which have the isolated cab and nose headlight (the early 8800 have only the cab headlight, and non-isolated cab). There were a number of released due out in December that did not make it, including the F7's, several freight car releases, and the Bi-polar electrics. I was not alluding to anything derogatory (as far as being a shill or something of that nature). I am looking forward to the PAs as long as they fix some of the detail issues, specifically with the Southern Pacific units.
Most of the layouts are behind glass, which makes photography incredibly difficult, if not impossible. As I was wandering down the visitor aisle between the first two layout rooms, I was beating myself that I didn't visit during one of the twice-weekly "work sessions" (Tuesday and Friday evenings). I realized that this museum is really a collection of a few large club layouts in one space.
A large part of the HO-Scale "San Diego & Arizona Eastern", especially near the museum entrance, is still visibly under construction.
The kids had a blast in the "Toy Train gallery" which is a relatively small room with 3 gentlemen running Lionel trains on 3-rail track.
No turnouts on the trolley line - and if I tried to take the trolley and run it around the main line of the layout, it would get stuck at nearly every turnout unless I was going really fast, the plastic frogs on snap track turnouts were enough to stop it dead with just those two little wheels for pickup. I think the plastic sticks up higher than the railheads, so any deep flange or wider than standards wheel will have problems.
I thinkit actually came out a few years before the track, and in some form was listed into the 70's in the Tyco catalog. I found that MTH announced a new model of SD70ACe which is described as SD70ACe Diesel Engine (Comfort Cab) . What are differences between comfort cab engine and regular one?Are details noticeable in a new versions? I could really use a few of those to pair up with the upcoming IM ES44DCs, and I've never liked the few cab-headlight versions (8000 series) CN had (which were an add-on to a NS order). The layout lighting was terrible, and it was hard to see details in the back of the rectangular layout room, since the visitor aisle runs only along one of the long edges of the rectangle.

This layout attempts a quite correct depiction of actual rail lines around San Diego to the East and South into Mexico. The visitor aisle side of the layout is painted like a passenger railcar and the viewing windows are the windows of the car. The layout is stuffed with tracks all over and there's a lot going on, so a very welcome diversion from the mostly static displays we saw with the other layouts. The scenery in combination with the painted backdrop is superb, and the layout is actually arranged to be viewer friendly. I've had the track, base and powerpack put together for over a year but struggled to come up with an idea for finishing it. It actually had a cardboard tube that you loaded with D batteries to run it (of course it has a normal 12V motor so it runs on a power pack too). It only has two brass wheels for power pickup and a huge ancient motor, doesn't work also.
Motor filles the entire inside, so they didn't bother with a light bulb and the silhouette people in the windows. Our non-street track trolley line just used of the shelf sectional track, I think it was 12" radius, and I actually managed to get a lot of things to run on it, but usually it was home to the trolley and the little blue 4 wheel industrial diesel from Flyer. It did get modified, the later ones had a smaller motor and the frosted passenger silhouettes (same ones they put in their passenger cars).
Maybe this is just a trick to get interest to the same model with one or two different details. I hope that those are just pre-production samples and the road specific details are correct for the production models.
I was thinking back to the PCM models where they had the grills over the portholes on their PAs (they also got some of the roof details wrong), thereby eliminating them altogether. Beforehand I took a look at their Web site, and learned that they have over 2700 sqm of floor space making it one of the biggest model railroad museums in the world. This is one of the biggest layouts in the museum space-wise, and was quite interesting to view. There are no windows to peek through, no back at the wall features like on most of the other layouts.
Definitely more interesting than some other attractions at Balboa park, but my expectations were certainly higher than the delivery. I finally had an idea for a city park, that was small enough to fit in the open space and still allow for alot of detailing. It runs, but generally has to run a ridiclous speed to get over the slightest speck of dust on the rails.

PCM was able to get it right, so hopefully the folks at MTH take as much care to get these things right.
I came for the layouts, so I didn't pay much attention to the wall display cases, with exception of the one that had items from John Allen's Gorre & Daphetid layout, including paper machee models of the layout. On one HO layout I built, I used the street tracks and arranged my houses around it for a town square and then ran extra with some flex track curved as tight as I could get it without kinking to run to a rural stop and also behind mt passenger station.
That's why I picked up the Bachmann unit, even then I had to carve off plastic from inside the frame and remove some of the clear lighting plastic so the trucks could swing wide enough.
The plastic body on the later ones was thinner, and I'm not sure if the underframe was still metal or not. I guess I could really pick the whole thing apart, but the numberboards really stick out to me. The "desert side" with El Cajon has some impressive deep canyons and trestles , though the scenery is very sparse.
Given it's N-scale, it's hard to see anything interesting that's more than 2-3 meters away from the visitor aisle. Operationally, again this is not particularly interesting to watch, and not many trains where running, but the presentation and level of detail make up for it.
This layout "burns" a lot of space on the mountains, canyons, and the descent into El Cajon.
I have a few two axle locos and an Model Power trolley that will not work on this track, either because its too tight, or the plastic roadbed actually sticks up above the rail just enough to foul the engine. Even though this layout is controlled digitally, trains are run over the line by an operator, one at a time, so there wasn't a lot going on here either.
The layout is manually controlled, and doesn't appear to have any automation, so while we were visiting two friendly guys were running trains over the mountains.
For some reason pretty much all major trains on the layout were at or en-route to El Cajon.
So there was a major traffic jam getting trains out from El Cajon and back on the San Diego side of the layout.
