To pull the growing "City" fleet, UP ordered a variety of new diesels between 1946 and 1950 when the first EMD E8s arrived. Typically run in A-B-B lash-ups, these engines, along with nearly identical E9s, were the signature power on UP's flagship trains through 1971.
 
Based on units assigned to various City trains, Walthers E8s feature authentic UP-specific details, including the road's distinctive rooftop snowshields. The models come with multiple unit numbers, and are factory-finished in authentic paint, lettering and striping to match the cars. Other features include:
 
* Train Number Decals On most roads, the engine's numberboard identified that locomotive. On the UP however, the lead engine of regularly scheduled trains such as the "City" Streamliners, displayed the train number for positive identification.
 
Modeling this extra level of detail is easy - PROTO 2000(R) E8A units feature blank numberboards, and a special set of decals with authentic train numbers to model east- or westbound trains!
