Union Pacific bicentennial DDA40X #6900 and ICC caboose #25717

The Bicentennial DDA40X collector’s set includes Athearn’s own interpretation of a Chester Mack inspired Bicentennial painted CA-10 caboose. Both DCC Sound equipped and DCC Ready DDA40X locomotives will come with the caboose equipped with a NCE DCC light decoder which operates on DC and DCC layouts.

As the United States approached its 200th Birthday, many railroads began painting a selection of their fleet in patriotic inspired liveries. As the story is told, Union Pacific had Chester Mack design a celebratory paint scheme for the first DDA40X to be produced. This proposed livery was brought to the decision makers and was decided against by a single vote. With permission by Union Pacific, Athearn has re-created this most legendary of Legendary Liveries.
