UP Mainline Power: AC45CCTE, Chicago & Northwestern models added

Dekosoft Trains adds two new bonus locomotive models for the Union Pacific Mainline Power set: AC45CCTE 7415 and AC44CW 6722, a patched Chicago & Northwestern unit.

The next generation of diesel technology from General Electric produced the GEVO series. The AC45CCTE introduces enhancements to both tractive effort and emissions compliance, as regulated under Tier 3 emissions standards. Our model features UP detailing, including cab roof antenna farm and realistic weathering. Our model depicts a weathered flag unit commonly found throughout the present-day UP system.

Also included is AC44CW, one of the last ordered units on the Chicago and Northwestern. Though heavily weathered, this machine was still rostered in 2015 and carries the legacy yellow and green lightning paint scheme.

The models are free for customers of the UP Mainline Power set, exclusively available at dekosoft.com.

Union Pacific Mainline Power

31 October 2016: Version 2.0 released. New SD70M locomotives and freight car set expanded, with additional improvements to previous models.

Dekosoft Trains presents modern era locomotives in Union Pacific Mainline Power for Open Rails. This set includes General Electric AC44CW, AC45CCTE and EMD’s SD60M and SD70M models with prototypical details and high resolution textures, custom sounds and 3D cab views.

General Electric introduced the AC4400CW (UP class CW44AC) and the similar Dash 9-44CW in 1993. These advanced technology locomotives saw great success in deployment Class 1 railroad across the US. Both models are powered by the 4,400 horsepower 7FDL16 prime mover and ride on six-axle high adhesion trucks. In contrast to the Dash-9, the AC units use alternating current traction motors instead of direct current to provide improved performance at low speeds and electronic controller technology for maximum pulling power in adverse conditions.

Union Pacific rostered 1,338 AC4400CWs, including patched units acquired from Southern Pacific and Chicago and Northwestern mergers. Later models were updated with Computerized Traction Software and designated AC4400CW-CTE. This unique UP safety modification limits the amount of horsepower delivered when the units are in helper service in the middle or at the rear of a train.

The EMD SD60M evolved from General Motors’ long history of producing high horsepower road units. In 1984 EMD introduced its 60 series to extend and replace fleets of six-axle SD’s, and succeed its highly popular SD40-2. Facing strong competition from General Electric, the EMD models raised performance through introduction of the 710G power plant yielding 3,800 horsepower. Union Pacific purchased 366 SD60Ms with three window and two window variations.

EMD’s SD70M carried forward the advances of the SD60 series with a 16-cylinder, 4,000 horsepower prime mover, standard safety cab, modular electronics and the introduction of the HTCR self-steering truck to provide improved traction and lessen wear on rails. After 2000, larger flared radiators were added to improve cooling efficiency and meet EPA Tier 1 requirements. Union Pacific recieved over 1,500 units in multiple orders. Our model features new sounds, 3-d cabview and flared and non-flared versions with high poly details and 2k resolution textures.

GP30 Pro Edition: Union Pacific

The Union Pacific Railroad has long taken an innovative approach in its use of diesel locomotive technology. In 1962, it was one of the first customers of General Motor’s GP30, a second generation general-purpose diesel switcher from its Electro-Motive Division, which featured many improvements over the first generation GP’s of the 1950s. This four-axle locomotive was based on a turbocharged 567 diesel power plant producing 2,250 horsepower and yielded up to 63,000 pounds of tractive effort. GM’s Automotive Styling Center, celebrated for its design of the 1959 Cadillac, created the GP30’s distinctive streamlined body. Union Pacific purchased the most GP30s of any railroad — a total of 111 cab units and 40 GP30B ‘booster’ units without cabs — and used them mostly for mainline freight service. A few GP30Bs were equipped with steam generators for passenger service.

Our Pro Edition set for Open Rails includes both GP30 phase II and GP30B models, painted in liveries ranging from the1960s through the last remaining units of the 1980s. We’re excited to include our first 3-D cab views to bring a new dynamic experience to the ORTS platform.
