I just got an idea for a exiting game here's how it goes. if you could design a loco using traits from other locos on your what would you use for example i would use the styling of a CNR 6400 class northern

 the wheel arangement of a UP 9000 class


and the massive 80 inch wheels of a santa fe northern

I have photoshoped a few such beasties over the years.




Here is a locomotive that *almost* existed, but didnt quite make it.
the Lackawanna needed new commuter engines in the 1950's..
they approached EMD about the possibility of building double-ended E8's for them! The commuter runs only needed one engine, and they needed engines that didnt need to be turned..an E-unit with 2 cabs would fit the bill! But the engines were never built, because the DL&W went with FM trainmasters instead.

And this is my favorite, the Lehigh Valley SD70..
I might actually build models of these!
In G-scale!
