    While the SD40-2 is nowhere near my favorite American locomotive (or even my favorite EMD) in real life, the Searchlight Simulations/Jointed Rail SD40-2 is absolutely my favorite American engine in the simulator. With excellent visuals, sounds, and physics the Searchlight SD40's only real competition is their AC4400CW. The Montana Hi-Line route is also arguably the best modern American route in game as well, having excellent scenery and being one of the few American routes with functional signaling.

    Not sure if this is favourite loco in game, or in real life. I am going for real life.

    40130 outside Manchester Victoria as it runs around its train in order to haul it back to Liverpool Lime Street.
    Autumn 1976.

    My last entry was my favourite loco in real life, but here's my favourite in game loco. It used to be the AP 37, but since its release, and updates, the AP 87 has become my in game favourite. It's just so involving to drive compared to modern stuff. The 87 holds a special place in my memories though, as I spent most of my later childhood on Preston station seeing these (sometimes when I should have been at school LOL), shortly after they were named, and before they had the high speed pantos fitted. I've seen every single one, and been in the cabs of almost all of them.

    87028 hauls the 1S30 Euston to Glasgow and a dead 86228, shown here shortly after leaving Stafford as mist begins to settle on a late autumn evening in 2002.

    From the same scenario as Pookeyhead, not one, not two, but all three of my favourite TSC locos come together in this shot.
    AP Class 87, AP Class 86 & the AP Class 37 on the ATS Missing Link Route. :D

    Being a child of the 60's, seeing and hearing one of these for the first time was an experience I'll never forget. Many a happy memory was spent aboard one of these iconic UK classics as during the late 1970s / early 1980s we regularly travelled from the West Midlands to holiday in Paington. Watching them blast along the coastal wall, for me was one of the highlights of our day trips to Dawlish...................

    A TransPennine Express class 158 carrying the Northern Spirit livery rolls through the countryside on a run from Manchester to Liverpool.

    Loco: AP class 158 (not sure which variant)
    Route: DTG Liverpool - Manchester

    These units in this livery are another of my favourites. I used to travel on these a lot between Doncaster and Scunny (Manchester - Cleethorpes services).
