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.
The SD70MAC is quite popular in today's railroading, being heavily used in coal train service by some of today's best-known Class I American railroads.

About the BNSF SD70MAC
The attractive BNSF Heritage II Scheme, also known as the "Premium Heritage Scheme," evolved from a special paint job applied to SD60M #9297. This locomotive was painted in a slightly different scheme on both sides, and based on employee input, the Heritage II Scheme was developed! Both the Heritage I and Heritage II Schemes are based on colors and logos from BNSF predecessor railroads.
