The MTH SD70ACE is offered in a large variety of accurate paint schemes including the six-engine Union Pacific heritage fleet. Each one-of-a-kind heritage fleet locomotive honors a "fallen flag" railroad that is now part of the Union Pacific system. This highly detailed model includes a broader range of features than you'll find on any other HO scale diesel, including operating flashing ditch lights smooth performance from a three-scale-mile-per-hour crawl to full throttle, "cruise control" for steady speeds regardless of curves, switches and grades built-in decoders for DCC and the MTH Digital Command System (DCS) and a full range of sounds recorded from a prototype Union Pacific SD70ACe.
This Proto-Sound 3.0 equipped locomotives can be controlled in command mode with any DCC compliant command control system. While the user won't have access to all of the incredible features of Proto-Sound 3.0, independent control over the locomotive is possible. This means you can continue to use your existing DCC controller to independently control your other DCC equipped locomotives in addition to your Proto-Sound 3.0 locomotive on the same track at the same time.
