    High five! Beat me to that reply.

    Deano, & all, modelrailroadtips.com has a simple number by number list of the SD70M's on UP, with the body style, and some paint hints:

    i dont mean to be rude but when i scrolling through some pictures on this thread i noticed that some of you guys have your layouts next to the window...... its not a really good idea b/c your tracks can get bent out of shape due to the heat (even when the blinds are closed)that is where i put my table at first for good photography and lighting....but then i realised my tracks were warping due to the heat (and i live in missery er...i mean Missouri so the humidity revamps it by 5x )
    sorry to report that but on a good point is i am revamping a SP GP40 sold/given by Readers Digest here is a link to a picture of two of them if you want you cant tell me the subtile diferrences or i can tell you. (paint doesnt count on the hand i repainted one of them)

    i know its not UP but doesnt the UP own the SP now since the 90's

    nscaler711, the sunshade on the left side of the SD70M looks "spot on":thumb: , the one on the right should be up a little:winki: . In the "up" position, they should be at the same angle as the roof, it should look continuous:winki: ....unless you put them in the "down" position:119: .

    Your NEW E7 looks FANTASTIC!:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Union Pacific Yard. They added this reporting mark to have more number series free. Not that they have 10000 engines yet, or close to it - more like 8000.

    Triplex is correct:winki: . though the UPY engines are designated for yard service, they run locals too:winki: , here is a pic i recently took of 5 UPY MP15DC's pulling a string of covered hoppers into Beloit WI:mrgreen: . i know these engines, they are from UP's "Harvard Sub" in Janesville WI:winki: .
