Prototype Information

The General Motors Locomotive Group (GMLG) Electro-Motive Division (EMD) SD70MAC is one of the most common locomotives plying the rails today. Originally introduced in late 1993 with an order for the Burlington Northern, the production now totals over 900 units, exceeding the combined production of the SD80MAC and SD90MAC locomotives by over 300 units.

Designed to be a solid locomotive to upgrade the Burlington Northern fleet, the SD70MAC has its origins in the SD60MAC design demonstrated on the BN.

At this time, the SD70MAC, in all of its versions, has been operated by six different railroads in a total of eight different paint schemes. The railroads that operate this locomotive span from East to West and from Mexico to Alaska! The locomotives are used to haul all kinds of freight, and even passenger trains (Alaska Railroad). For comparison, the SD80MAC has been operated in three paint schemes and the SD90MAC has been operated by three railroads in four paint schemes.


Model Features

All of these models will feature our White LED Headlight, magnetic knuckle couplers, printed and lighted number boards, MU hose detail, a powerful five-pole motor with dual brass flywheels, and a DCC-friendly mechanism. Additionally, the models will feature walkway-mounted, lighted ditch lights! Handrails will be made of a paintable material so modelers can easily add white end railings.

Featuring a new bodyshell and trucks to correctly represent this version of the SD70MAC, these models will also be equipped with all-wheel electrical pick-up and blackened metal wheels. The trucks replicate EMD's HTCR Phase I trucks.

Roadname Information —
  • BNSF Executive Scheme
    As noted above in the Prototype History, the SD70MAC grew out of the EMD/BN SD60MAC demonstrators. The first SD70MAC was delivered to the BN in 1993 and established a standard locomotive type that remains a favorite on BNSF today. Even after the BN+ATSF=BNSF merger, the SD70MAC continued to be painted in the classy "Executive" scheme. BNSF #9837, manufactured in March, 1997, was the final new locomotive to be painted in the BN Executive scheme.
  • BNSF Heritage II Scheme
    The attractive BNSF Heritage II Scheme, also known as the "Premium Heritage Scheme," evolved from a special paint job applied to SD60M #9297. (Photos are available from The BNSF Photo Archive and BNSFpix.com.) This locomotive was painted in a slightly different scheme on both sides, and based on employee input, the Heritage II Scheme was developed! The original Heritage I scheme is still applied to standard cab locomotives, as shown on our previously produced SD40-2 Snoot Nose, however all wide cab locomotives now receive the Heritage II Scheme when repainted. Both the Heritage I and Heritage II Schemes are based on colors and logos from BNSF predecessor railroads.
  • Conrail
    An astute modeler will note that the road numbers Conrail assigned to their SD70MAC locomotives (4130-4144) fall neatly in line behind the road numbers assigned to their previously delivered SD80MACs (4100-4129). Conrail had placed an order with EMD for additional SD80MAC locomotives. But, then the NS & CSX merger/split with Conrail occured and the two new owners divided all locomotives right down the middle. Because this was a pending order, and CSX and NS were now in control, they were able to make order modifications. According to the Conrail Cyclopedia, Norfolk Southern converted their allotment of the second SD80MAC order into standard cab SD70 locomotives, while CSX converted their order into wide cab SD70MAC locomotives. Delivered in Conrail paint, these locomotives were built to the specifications of their future owners (note no red warning lights on CR SD70MACs). These were Conrail's final locomotives.
  • CSX
    On the CSX, the hard-working SD70MAC (known by the CSX as the SD70AC) is assigned to the Cumberland Coal Division. Delivered in 1997, CSX's original 75 locomotives were supplemented with an additional 15 from the Conrail merger. Prototype photos of CSX SD70MAC locomotives are available from the CSX Photo Archives.
  • BNSF "2005," "Heritage 3," "Swoosh," "Nike," "New IMage," or "Power Bar" Scheme
    Kato is happy to announce the SD70MAC in BNSF Railway “Swoosh” (a/k/a "Heritage 3," "Nike," "2005'" "New Image" or "Power Bar" scheme in Cab Headlight and Nose Headlight variations. The “Swoosh” paint scheme is the latest look for the BNSF rail road, at once celebrating its past history, while modernizing its look for the future, and is a hotly demanded scheme for modern railroad modelers.  Note: Wwith the introduction of this scheme BNSF dropped the formal name "Burlington Northern Santa Fe" and adopted BNSF Railway as the new name of the railroad.

Item Description Pricing & Order Link

Stock Checks:

Inventory is a fluid commodity.  It changes by the hour (sometimes by the minute). To retain our pricing structure we maintain stock levels designed to turnover 6 times each year. We cannot guarantee stock status till we have an order in hand. All product is subject to prior sale. If we confirm that we have it, and, while we are waiting for the order it sells, you would be upset that we did not hold it.
We used to hold items but learned a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson. When we held items for customers’ orders, the order never materialized 80%+ of the time.  We lost out on the orders placed while the item was on hold.  Also we wasted staff time that could have been used to pull actual orders.
Since we are well known for finding older stock the fact that it may not be on our shelves at this minute does not mean we can’t get it. So, as we spell out on our terms pages, we don’t do it anymore.
You may, however, call in and we will tell you if the items are available and if possible attempt to locate what we don’t have while you are on the phone.
