Athearrn ATH71530 SD40-2 UP/Desert Victory #3593 RTR Train HO Scale. Brand New In Factory Packaging. In-Stock, Ships Within 24 Hrs. Painted into the MAERSK Sealand scheme in the Summer of 2002 for the grand opening of a new MAERSK facility located on Terminal Island in the Port of Los Angeles.
NS painted and sent to CA this special painted SD40-2 for ceremonies and photo ops. The locomotive continued on in this scheme until about May 2008 when it was painted back into black. Although in poverty, and the Southern Pacific influence began to diminish, the Rock Island initially was luke warm to jumping on board with the SD40-2. Ordering a total of ten units, these locomotives were seen frequently in pool power on the Union Pacific and occasionally on the Southern Pacific too. UP DESERT VICTORY FEATURES: Large UP style plow 88 nose with brake wheel Illuminated ditch lights Early extended range dynamic brake On February 27th, 1991 a tribute was paid by the Union Pacific Railroad to the American troops and UP employess serving in the Persian Gulf War.
UP #3593, an EMD SD40-2, rolled out of the North Little Rock shops in full desert camouflage dress. Union Pacific railroad employees had repainted the SD40-2 as a symbol of their support for fellow workers called to active duty for the Persian Gulf War. Dedicated less than 12 hours before the cease-fire was announced, it was hailed as "Desert Victory" by UP railroaders.
Our SD40-2 is prototypically modeled after UP's 3593, right down to the intricate camouflage patterns. About the same time, the struggling Southern Pacific, realized the new paint formula used in Sacramento, in order to correspond with strict California EPA regulations, began to peel in an unexpected manner that mimicked desert camouflage. The railfan community dubbed SP #7319, perhaps the worst case of the peeling paint, as SP's Desert Storm.
We are offering both locomotives together. The SD40-2 was an improvement over the SD40, with modular electronic control systems similar to those of the experimental SD45X and DDA40X.
The last SD40-2 delivered to a United States railroad was built in July 1984, with production continuing for railroads in Canada until 1988. LED Lighting Minimum Age Recommendation.14 years Is Assembly Required. We are an authorized dealer of every product we offer in our store.
