Lionel did the Southern Pacific A-6 Atlantic engines in the 2018 Volume 2 catalog. They were delivered around August/September 2019. One if which was decorated in UP Grey Model # 1931180. It may not be 100% prototypical it is a real nice engine as my friend Ray has one. You should be able to find one of the forum sponsors that has one. Try Nicholas Smith first he usually has a good selection.
I have this engine and though I only ran it once so far it is a very nice smaller engine with nice features and runs great and been happy with it.

Are Lionel’s light, and or heavy, Mikados too large for your layout? My Heavy Mikado runs on my O36 track okay and safely negotiates O48 FasTrack switches. (Though I do operate at slow speeds.)
Every steam layout needs the Geep of steam locomotives, the Mikado.
Thanks for the UP A6 suggestion - now the challenge of finding a dealer that has one. It looks like just what I was looking for!
K-line did this B6.
I have one left...$675. Let us know if we can help.
atlantic is perfect i have two from the tmcc run. i have a legacy daylight atlantic i have never opened i’d like to get rid of. make you a great price on it. i’ll just never run it. took my layout a different direction.
Thanks to all! I just placed an order for the UP A6 from OGR magazine advertiser Side Track Hobbies. I had a nice conversation with owner Al Rudman who told me he would test the engine before shipping UPS insured, signature required and ship with double boxing. Great service! And UPS shows that the package will arrive this Friday.
