I couldn't choose a single loco as "most beautiful". I like 'em all, and there are too many really good looking ones to choose from. There are a few that I would put near the top of the list though... like that Eureka & Palisades 4-4-0, and the UP Challenger, N&S #1218, etc.

There are some nifty diesels but they just don't do it for me in the same way as steam locos.

For me it has to be steam and a CN Mountain class U-1-d to be precise. A close second would be a CP Jubilee, a beautiful little streamlined 4-4-4 that has a wonderfully balanced look especially the F-1-a version.

Well, over all it is without a doubt D&RGW #346...

For diesels I would have to go with the SD70ace UP Rio Grande Heritage Unit...

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.   If so,  then I have a narrow point of view..........

ripvanwnkl -


   I, too, think the N&W J is about as good as it gets.  I can't think of another engine that's nearly as easy on the eyes.  The J came through here a number of years ago and to avoid the crowds at a crossing stopped on the track within the fencing on our property.  We had a nice chat with the engineer, who decided to leave when he noticed several "fans" were tearing up part of our fence to get closer.   I had a nice chat with those "fans", as well.


   A beautiful engine up close or from afar.


   Regards
