OMAHA, Neb. – Union Pacific has shared more information on its new "Powered By Our People" SD70ACe No. 1111, which the railroad refers to as its "Employee Pride Locomotive." It was officially unveiled at a June 6 celebration in Omaha.

Twelve employees at the Jenks Shop in North Little Rock, Ark., contributed the repainting work, which is different on each side of the locomotive.

According to the railroad, the paint design was selected through a system-wide online employee vote, which highlights the unique and diverse employee population while representing the critical crafts and skills that do the work. Artists took a "graphic novel approach," using solid color pallets, shading techniques, and larger-than-life figures.

The locomotive's number represents Union Pacific's goal to be the No. 1 railroad with the No. 1 employees who have the No. 1 safety dedication with one vision – "Building America."

The railroad has shared a video and photo gallery detailing the paint on the locomotive.
