My nomation is the F59PHI and the P42 on Amtrak and NC dot
Class 802 in TPE livery for me. The Class 68 in TPE livery is great as well.
A clean Class 395 or 373 is good as well.
For me, the Union Pacific “Big Boy”. Even sitting still it exudes power.
I'd have to go with the Amtrak P42 Genesis. A powerful, sleek looking workhorse.
I assume this is ruling out the Gresley A4 Pacific which is in a class by itself.
I think the Class 395 or Class 800
If I include steam, I would nominate the SP Streamlined GS4.
shinkansen 300 series is another one I like
It's really difficult to pick one loco but this has to be one of my favorites.
note this is the original livery, a red stripe between the headlights has been added later for visibilty but I like this one better.
US Locos, I too love the streamlined US diesels, such as the F59PH I think they look really good.
In the EU, I think the Vectron has to be the best, I really love its design, the Taurus being a close second.
The Pennsylvania T1 is a great looking locomotive, as were lots of other streamlined US steam locos. I'd also pick the original non-streamlined LNER P2s for their odd design, and perhaps the V2 and A1/3 as well. For me, the LMS Coronation (non-streamlined) is a close second. I never liked the A4.
What about for another steam locomotive NW 611
this thread needs more pics
this is my fav from the uk
For me, the 745 Flirt Takes the crown
Class 360 (clean) and a 755/745 (clean)
Gonna give a second vote to the class 68, but I’d like to throw in the 158/159 as a contender, just a beautifully simple looking unit.
Here is the class 68
Btw I'm adding images of the locos
Class 158 and 159
Here is j class 611 in model train form
f59phi and P42
And in real life. My personal favorite:
-Southern Pacific GS Class Locomotives, especially in the Daylight Paint
-Brightline's Siemens Charger
-JR's 500 Series Shinkansen
-JR's 700 Series Shinkansen
Emds sd60 locomotives
Another vote for the F-units from me.
Going back to Britain, the Class 180 (especially in clean Grand Central livery) is a sight to behold, and I love the Kestrel concept. Too bad it was never preserved.
Oh same here with f units I absolutely love them
