Personally I like the newer more square looking diesels that spun out of the 60's.

The earlier diesels with their streamlined look I could care less for.

Ironically, they tend to look more modern because they're more aerodynamic.

so when the auto industry went from boxy designs to round ones the locomotive industry sort of went backwards - only in the freight locomotive department.  Anyway

Paul,
I like the logo on your signature.  Is that a small railroad and that's why I've never heard it or is it a railroad you created?

I really dig the logo.

Anyone here ever create your own railroad complete with logo?
