I still say that the most beautiful paint scheme on a loco was the famed Santa Fe red, silver and gold "warbonnet."  It was most famously on the EMD F7A and the Alco PA-1.  The blue and gold Santa Fe paint schemes for all of their locos was a thing of beauty, too...all of their paint schemes and not just the warbonnets.

Just watched the Cornishman video.

for those that didn't catch it on John's post above.  Smokes like an old Alco, but you have to love those double enders.

Was that the engineer in the REAR cab?  Or just a dead head?

Is that a class 52?

I love the red, silver and gold paint jobs on dash8s and 9s, also with f7s!

To be honest, I've never seen a picture of 4446 Embarrassed. Is she one of those Black GS-4s or is she a GS-6? Undecided

I'll let this run for a few more days, then try to tabulate it all. "Most" means one nominee per member, some are "stuffing" the ballot box with quotes of the same picture.  Angry   Cheesy

BTW, did I mention I hate quotesHuh?    Cheesy
