Don't you dare make fun of the M3. Especially with one of those old B&M doodlebugs. Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

PD,
That's cute, "Good Humor" on rails. Did you notice someone ordering an ice cream cone?  Tongue

Matthew,
Yes, I refer members to that site frequently, great reference source.

I appreciate the links guys, however if you read the opening post, the topic of this thread is for members to nominate ONE locomotive, including a picture or a link to the picture, for the "Most Beautiful Locomotive". Winning locomotive will be judged by a plurality if there is one. It may just end in a tie, in which case they are all winners.

Lots of great looking locomotives (except for the ice cream wagon), takes some thought to pin it down to just one. There's another thread going for the "Ugliest". (hint, hint)  Cheesy

Greetings from Albuquerque (Y. Bob: be advised that every day brings us closer to Colorado...he, he). I absolutely have to agree with OkieRick...that is one beautiful American! Look at the decoration; observe the locomotive's lines; check out those huge drivers...poetry in motion (well...when it is moving).

Hi Clif,
Yep, it applies when there are more than two candidates. Kind of a silly word, but it's in Webster

Hey Ray, welcome back, almost. Yeah, the old timers are neat. My nomination was tough as I like them also.  However, the Yampa Valley Mail used the PAs and I run them on my layout.

If you're coming to Colorado, bring a boat. It has rained here every day for two weeks. Not steady, but enough to "dampen" everyone's spirits.

You should have seen the ice cream wagon before they fixed it up. What a mess.

Bob, that photo is the Yampa Valley Mail? I love "little" passenger trains.  Smiley

Jeff,
I also like the shorter cars. It's been a challenge finding "bashables". I shortened a 75 footer to make a 50' replica of this one.

Another vote for the Norfolk & Western Class J.  I lived in southern Ohio (Portsmouth, Cincinnati) when these streamlined steam powered beauties pulled the Powhatan Arrow and Pocahontas passenger trains along the Ohio River.  They were hard to beat for looks, strength, speed, and durability.
