As much as I love them…3 windows is never the right number.

Y’know, I thought of Alco when you said that

Our railroads here in VA weren’t ready for the future

ugly australian nose

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.


>>6434 – What did you expect? The New Zealandic DX class is US-built.

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

>>6470 – I still think Tonka designed the 70s.

>>6481 – Nose looking like The Luggage v nose looking like a skip. Decisions, decisions…

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.



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.
