The Australian cabs fascinated me as a child. There was a brief section on Australian mining railroads in one of my childhood big train books, and I was baffled at the idea of an engine without a nose.

I guess there's nothing major to crash into in the middle of nowhere.

He said ugly engines. I disagree wholeheartedly. Visually the train is beautiful.

DXRs are DX rebuilt with wide short nose replacing the original

Always thought the headlight arrangement ruins this engine, though I don't know what to replace it with.

It's far uglier in all-black, and especially with a single headlight. Yech.

>>6492

Actual Warbaby. Note the anti-aircraft shield on the headlight and lack of side skirts. GS-6's had to be approved by the Wartime Production Board.

This. This is pretty much the future of all Russian freight electric locomotives, the first mainline electric loco with all-Russian asynchronous traction drive. …and it just had to be that ugly…

I mean seriously, look at ES5K series. Totally OK looking front, which they stripped the entire plastic bottom part off of.

For some reason, I like the look of this.

You mean 2ES5S? Well it's not very ugly, it's design is just inconsistent, it looks unfinished.

Look at the 2ES5K from which its design is derived. Looks much sleeker and more "finished", isn't it?

Being used to blunt-nosed British and European engines, I see nothing wrong here.

I agree. I am not a fan of the whole SD60/SD50 series (nearly identical bodies).

More importantly: where's the second cab?
