My favorite diesel locomotives are the B and A class bulldogs introduced to service in Victoria, Australia in the 1950s (as well as the S class).

If I can include a railcar into this, the unique 2000 class railcars in South Australia are a favorite too. Although I am cheating as these are not locomotives, they have around 1000hp per power car, which is more than most branchline locos would have.

As for my personal opinion on the 44 class, as grungy as they may seem, I like the look of the units used by Independant Rail for the Minto to Port Botany container shuttle trains. The 'Semi Retired Foamer' blog has some shots of them at this link:
