Iowa Interstate;
1) Rock Island 513

I did love the Rio Grande loco, but you just can't go past RI 513's amazing paint scheme.

I refuse to vote, wheres the 4610?
Though despite being a Southern fan, I like this one better (Yes, 7312 is a heritage unit)

EDIT: Ok fine, you said UP and IAIS, but since IAIS is in the game, NS and CP should be too. ;)

I never knew NS & CP have Heritage locomotives, my apologies. I just thought the 2 D&H locomotives were like the rest of the CP/CN takeovers . . . Fallen Flags.

The CNW, SP and MP heritage units are nice, but I have to say the MoPac, simply because it is the only one I've ever shot, and it has a really nice design. I'm a sucker for blue...wish I was alive and old enough to shoot Conrail before they kicked the can. Sure would like to see a CR heritage unit someday! Also, add that NS SOU heritage GP59 to the list.

I personally like the Rio Grande but they are all really nice, so I guess I don't have a favorite.

I voted for the DRGW unit. Its my favorite listed currently, but I think I might have voted prematurely (4610 prolly deserves it). I also like 1995 a lot.

UP 4141 is my favorite of the Petes. I haven't seen any of them in peron, but this one is the one I'd love to see.

Voted for the Katy

CPR should do a TH&B heritage unit
