I'm an American, born and raised, and I love our freight trains here in The States - always have and always will. Nothing looks cooler to me than four ET44AC's or SD70ACe-T4's rolling by with 120+ cars attached. Having said that, I just started running the German ICE3M train and I love it, especially during a rain or snow storm. Something about flyin' down the tracks at 155 MPH is just awesome. Yeah, I'm converted.
