Has anyone heard anything about the remaining Heritage units that UP is doing on their SD70ACe's as far as when there due out. A few are riding the rails, Missouri Pacific, Katy, Western Pacific and the George Bush. I'm just curious about the remaining 3 units for the Southern Pacific, Denver & Rio Grande and Chicago & Northwestern. Has the UP has scrapped the idea or not ?

I saw the Katy and the George Bush units a while back while traveling in Texas but didn't have a camera to snap off a few personal photos which is what prompted me to write this post.

Thanks in advance for the responses.

The UP 8521-8523 are supposed to be the next batch. 8521 is in Proviso (unless it's on its way north already) to get painted for DRGW at Horicon.

8521 is headed off to Horicon today(5/25) and after painted will be headed to Omaha(covered by a tarp of course) where it will be unveiled sometime in June.
