UP Tier 4 Credit Units
Author: texchief1

Do the UP Tier 4 credit units have the same styling with radiator and all like the Tier4s or are the like a regular C45AH(ES44AC)?

Thanks in advance!

They are ES44AC's, Tier 3.

How many of them are they getting/allowed to get for 2019/2020? And, what about Progressive Rail/EMD units? And if none of the latter, why the difference?

That's Progress Rail.

Had a chance to look at a builder's plate on an UP SD70ACe recently, and while it did say Progress Rail on it, the EMD logo was prominently displayed.  Just saying.

I think the point he was making is that is Progress Rail.  Progressive Rail is an entirely different outfit. Just like Indiana Railroad is a defunct interurban, and Indiana Rail Road, is a regional railroad.

As it should be because Progress Rail builds EMD locomotives.

UP has no new units on order in 2019, and I suspect that with their implementation of PSR there will be no new units ordered for 2020 as well. This year, Progress will complete an order for GP22s (order for 10) and are in their second year of C44ACMs from GE (order for 980).
