Janusz... why do you assume there was anything more to my question than the question itself?

Not every inquiry has to have a hidden point.


As an aside - when you say Amtrak, the first thing I see in my mind is an SDP40F.

[edit] - I'd also note, that an F7, an E8, an E9, an F40PH, a GP40TC, a P30CH, a GG1, an E60CP, an E60CH, an AEM7, an AMD103 (later P40DC), a Dash 8-32BWH, a P42DC, a P32AC-DM, an FL9, a RS3, a GP7, an SW10, a CF7, an HHP8, an Acela, a Metroliner, an F59PHI, an UA Turbo Train, a French Turboliner, a Rohr Turboliner, and an RDC (inlcuding the Roger Williams cab) would, each and everyone one of them, be a legitimate subject for an Amtrak heritige project to me - as well as perfectly saying "Amtrak." I don't think there is a wrong answer here... I was, and am curious, when Max says it is the quitessential engine to him, is he saying among his age group and friends.
