Favorite locomotives and paint are UP Centennials (DD40X), UP SW10's, and UP wide cab SD70's with "wings". Anything UP is awesome really. I like CP's newer paint as well.

I just can't beat the 80's, love 'em even though, like the 2nd favorited, they get painted.

Seemingly gaining an interest to me everytime I encounter it:

Note that with the exception of the red and silver, none of these appeared on a damn wide nose. You guys can keep your GEVOs and MACs.... give me all the Dash 7s still around and I'll bein heaven! And, remember, keep your feet on the ballast and keep reaching for the stars.

GEVO's just another name for catfish


Joe, you may not find a MAC appealing, but I still to this day don't want to believe that Chessie is one of the parents of CSX.
