Union Pacific FEATURES:
Repainted lightning stripe scheme for 2012+ appearance
Original UP ordered units in 9700 series (rather than ex -CNW or -SP)
Varying paint schemes per repaint detail, including different placement
of the -lighting stripe- and Union Pacific shields, as well as varying
warning labels per prototype
Curved engine compartment hood profile
Early -tabbed- dynamic brake intake panels
Early style dynamic brake exhaust fascia
Various A/C cabinets based on prototype photos
Modified power assembly hood doors on top of engine compartment
with added hinges

One of Union Pacifics hallmarks is their eclectic collection of motive power.
However, the venerable Dash 9 of the time was ordered in few numbers by
the UP - only 40 to be exact. Here we have 4 of those examples depicted late
in their careers; repainted -lightning stripe- scheme, yellow frame stripe and
wings on the nose. These unique repaints have many nuances; chiefly, they do
not feature the American flag on their flanks.
