For me, it is a little hard to say. Undecided Undecided

My favorite railroad is the NICKEL PLATE ROAD (NKP).
My favorite steam locomotive is the N&W's class J 4-8-4.
My favorite frieght diesel is the EMD SD45. (Great Northern paint scheme)
My favorite passenger diesel is EMD E7. (also Great Northern)

As of right now, my favorite engines from the NKP are:
Steam~2-8-4 Berkshire
Diesel~GP30

For me, it would be a three-way tie between the Pennsy GG-1, New Haven EF-3, and Milwaukee EF-1. The MILW Little Joe, and Amtrak E60 and AEM-7 get honorable mentions.

I second Tim, the New Haven electric are hawt! Kiss
For me its probably B&M's 2-6-0, with the 2-8-0's, and 4-6-2's tieing for second.

Westsidelumber.  Your question was:  "what is your favorite engine that your favorite railroad made?"  I don't think the Santa Fe MADE either of the two locomotives you listed.  While my favorite railroads are the C&O and the Milwaukee Road I don't think either railroad MADE any locomotives, though the C&O did convert some heavy Pacifics to Hudsons in the late 1940s. 
Now, what are my favorite C&O/Milwaukee locomotives is another question.

Santa Fe rebuilt  a fleet of aging F7's into CF7's.  I don't know if the U30CG's are or are not rebuilds...

The U30CG's were not rebuilds; they were ordered new from GE in 1967, according to every source I've seen.

my favorite is amtrak acela. amtrak made acela a big deal for washington suits and new york gordon geckos to go fast in a train from boston to washington very quickly and not stopping you see. with new york in between it picked up the geckos on there way to washigton to payoff the suits or on there way to boston to drink and so forth. they dont call it grand central station for nothing. it probably costs more to ride it then the bachman acela costs. thanks.

What do you mean by this? All Amtrak trains in New York use Penn Station, not Grand Central. I don't think ANY Acela has ever been inside Grand Central, since it doesn't have catenary.

That makes even less sense than the last post that you are trying to defend..

But it's all good.....you have that post and delete trick down pat.
