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.

DXRs are DX rebuilt with wide short nose replacing the original

>>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.

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.

It's a one off built radio controlled switcher.

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?

That nose… what on earth were they thinking?


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?
