My favorite engine?   East Broad Top mikado,  number 17.   This was the first engine I saw run during my first visit to what has become my favorite railroad.

LD303

     Since you like GP30s,  here is a picture you will like.  It is the GP30 on the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad.

thanks bob, i love the paint scheme! 

 seasalt....if you want a steam only thread, start one, but dont bellyache because someone likes diesels, i enjoy steamers, i love watching them start, steam billowing, wheelslip, all the stack noise and smoke.....but im not a ''steam fan'' , and while i agree that diesels dont have the charm  and quaintness of steamers, they are still very interesting.

Shay cn#94 built 1883. Used in Allegan, Mi area ( my home) Owned by Dewing & Sons Lumber Co. Operated on the "Allegan & Lake Shore R.R."Later went to WV. The Bachmann On30 is a very good likeness. A wood cowcatcher, Square headlight, and earlier cab are all the changes needed.

LD303 : I was serious in my comment. If I am to learn about GP30's, 38's & 40's, do they have some abiding technical feature.

I think there are other threads on the board to post pretty pictures, this one was to bring out a learning for me and for others.

What is the horsepower? What is the tractive effort? What makes them your favorite diesel loco beyond just a pretty paint scheme and a pretty picture: or as another wag would say, "a boxcar with a motor".

  ok seasalt.......whats the abiding tech. feature of your favorite loco?  whats the h.p.? whats the tractive effort? what makes it your favorite steam loco? you didnt answer any of those questions on your post.  so whats up with the attitude?Huh???
     this thread says whats your favorite loco? not what steam locos do you like...... so if youre so bored and hating everything not steam powered...make another thread and call it steam locos...simple enough yes?Huh?Huh?  
  like it or not seasalt.......the majority of people in this country have never seen a steam loco up close...or maybe even at all....but diesels are everywhere, and thats what they relate to, so if you dont like it that others dont find steam locos so fascinating, i guess youll just have to be bored and complain a lot.

forget mean stubborn. and i did tel everyone my age so you are wrong and i don't think anyone wants to earn respect from a person like you. leave seasalt alone he is the one who is doing the right thing not you. i am going to stand up for people who get told what to do and how to do things by people like you.

Ya'll stop quaraling and act like civilized people. I am not one to intrude but this is a train board not a chat room. Steam locos are beautiful in design and how they opperate and diesels have nothing compared to the iron horse but I also like diesels but they have to be from the 30s or the past, any how my favorate loco in the tweetsie ten wheeler, although i swear i said this in this board unless i put it in a other one. Oh no i think i did

oh yes!! i am stubborn...and im RIGHT!! you lied....you admitted it and asked to be forgiven,   but thats done.
   what does ''a person like you'' and ''people like you'' mean???  are you discriminating?  are you a hater??  
  seasalt got all flustered because i dared  to post an evil diesel pic and then proceeded to get huffy and say this thread is for steam only...well where in the title does it say that?Huh???  
  youre going to have to face facts jr., you are ALWAYS going to have someone telling you what to do and how to do it......get used to it.
