My all time favorite would have to be an F7 from Canadian Pacific in their maroon and grey paint scheme.

What I REALLY DO KNOW, is a fact. When you are waiting for a train in Grand Central, don't be a wise guy and pee on the 3rd rail....I did have an intelligent question, but after reading this thread...I forgot what I was going to say....about a year before NH joined Penn Central, a conductor freind of my father got us a cab ride in an FL9 from New Haven into Grand Central....wow. Like toy trains, in Conn.-steam tenders on work equipment, diesels and overhead cat pulling freight, the ex Virginians came at us, looked like square tigers!, 3rd rail shoes made it look like lionel track with welding sparks, then in the tunnel under -Park Ave? a railroad pergatory for bad trains....and no camera.....FL9 must be my favorite oil burner, 52 year old experiment but some still start up and go to work everyday....

Thank you Sherlock...
It most certainly HAS to go through NJ since their is not to the best of my knowledge, an electrified alternative route that does not pass through the state...

Oops... my bad... All those pick-pockets on Amtrak that I've never noticed  must be very dangerous. Its very easy to board an express train, pickpocket a few people to make up for the cost of the ticket, and get off an hour later at the next stop and not get caught by the crew or all those people sitting in their seats where its even more difficult to get at their pockets?
All those scapegoated New Jersey people must be very worried right now... maybe Amtrak will stop stopping in New Jersey, in fear of all those pick pockets...

Ok then... back to the point.

I can never decide my favorite engine, or my favorite rainroad but one of my favorite railroads is the Pennsylvania RR. And my favorite of their engines was the T1 duplex.

its about a hour from newark to baltimore you see. If guys with diamonds or money lenders was going to washington and new jersey crooks got off in baltimore before they got to washington theyd be in the wind before the diamond guys and money lenders saw there stuff missing and so forth. its simple math that makes acela work for these guys. On acela also the security eyeballs everybody real close as far as if there up to something. Thanks.
