Hmmm, as you could probably figure out from my username, I like the BNSF 7687, ES44DC.

Yeah, bnsf sammy, whoops indeed... Forget the SDP40PH! (That's what the SD stands for)!!

I have always liked the styling of the F69, pity it never got to production...

BTW, The F59PHI does look okay in Amtrak California livery....

I also like the F40PH for its looks. There's just something about it...

I think it would be hard to pick a single favorite, but I can narrow it down, my favorite early diesel, C&O FP7 and E8 in the silver, blue and yellow. But I have a soft spot of any Baldwin shark or Alco PA.
Favorite of the second generation would be a tie between C&O U25 and GP30 locos. I like the distinctive split 5 chime horn on the C&O geep 30s.
As for modern power, I have to go with the GE dash 8s, 9s and now their GEVOs in just about any paint. They look brutish and I think they have cleaner lines than modern EMD locos.

But the real number one spot in my heart for locomotives will always go to the C&O K4 2-8-4

N&W J Class 4-8-4 Northerns are the best looking passenger locomotive ever built IMO. Their design and engineering under the streamlining wasent too shabby either

EMD SD40-2 in any livery scheme gets my vote.

Classic power for so many years

Frederick knows what he is talking about! (F45)

Heres a list also..

1. WC SD45s
2. WC F45s
3. SOO SD40s
4. SOO F units
5. Rock Island GP38-2s


But I also enjoy most all other WC and SOO units. I also really like the WC,GTWs,GM&Os,ICs,and DW&Ps straight SD40s.

F59PHI in the new Amtrak Cascades lively takes the top of the list for me
4 axle = BN GP50
6 axle = BN SD70MAC
Being a BNSF railfan, as long as its not a C44-9W/ES44, Im pretty happy.

Im only 19 and I don't live in a historically rich RRing area (ok, I do, but not much has been preserved), so I haven't really seen that much.

Default vote from across the pond...

Being in the UK and never having visited the US I can only go from photos and models, but from what I've seen in photographs the Penn GG1s probably looked the prettiest as far as lines go... (not counting conventional steam locomotives - the J class wins my 'US steam' vote here)

but for sheer 'presence' I would have to go with the Chesapeake and Ohio 2-C1-2-C1-B Baldwin Steam-Turbine Electrics (500 series)
