Description

 

The Union Pacific Railroad’s quest for higher horsepower locomotives during the 1930s through 1960s led to some of the most interesting motive power in railroading history. In 1949, UP and General Electric (GE) began experimenting with gas turbine powered locomotives. The tests were successful so UP ordered 10 Standard Turbines which were delivered in 1952 and 1953. These powerful locomotives ran alongside UP’s fabled FEFs, Challengers, Big Boys, Veranda Turbines, and “Big Blow” Turbines. They were retired by the summer of 1964.

The Rivet Counter™ line strives to create the most accurately detailed models possible.

By using detailed photographs, diagrams, and builder documents we were able to determine that the Standard Turbines were delivered with UP gray paint instead of silver as our pre-production sample shows. In addition, on road numbers 51-52 and 54-55, the version without Farr grilles, a light gray overspray will be included on the grilles on the production models.

Thanks to these changes, our Rivet Counter N Scale GE Standard Turbine will faithfully capture the road number specific details of these powerful and iconic locomotives.
