Union Pacific 1995 is an EMD SD70ACe diesel-electric locomotive owned by the Union Pacific Railroad (UP). It is the fifth locomotive in the railroad's "Heritage Series" of SD70ACe locomotives painted as tributes to UP predecessor railroads. 1995 is painted in honor of Chicago and North Western Railway, which became a part of UP in 1995.

The locomotive, painted at the Horicon, Wisconsin, shops of Wisconsin and Southern Railroad, was unveiled at a private ceremony for UP's ex-CNW employees at Proviso Yard in suburban Chicago on July 15, 2006, before being publicly displayed at North Western Station (C&NW's former station) in Chicago. After its unveiling, the locomotive pulled freight train MPRCB from Proviso to Council Bluffs, Iowa in conjunction with CNW 8646 and 8701 (a set of GE Dash 9-44CW locomotives still in CNW paint). The 1995 then entered regular revenue service, eventually operating through Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
