Wow, could it be that this March will be the 4th Anniversary of this topic? What was I thinking when I posted this when I was 14? I hardly even do much on this forum anymore. I should get back in the swing of things.
 
My interests have changed since I first posted, at least a little bit.

What was it the engines said? Well, UP 119 called the Central Pacific Jupiter a western snob and Jupiter made fun of 119's midwester accent.

Hi All:
 
Absolutetly positively, a Baldwin Centepede or RF-16 Sharknose. I worked on a VO660 for many years. Nothing like the sound of a Baldwin Engine.

Did any one mention SANTA FE'S CF7 ? both versions:
 
the round roof  
the angled roof  
 
I would say any of the GE's EMD's built before 1966-1972

My favorite diesel was the Es and Fs units. They was everywhere.

I really only like steam and electric locomotives. However, I do like the EMD SD60.

I hope it's not too late to add a vote or two. A personal favorite would be N&W's RS-11's. I worked at a gas station near Kenova, WV in the 1977-78 time frame. N&W had a yard literally across the road from us. By then they were pretty much all EMD but there were still occasional Alcos coming through (1013 was one, as well as a handful of RS-11's).
 
One day three RS-11's were sandwiched between a pair of GP-9's and when the engineer notched out--oh, the smoke, oh, the noise, and I wish I had been able to get either or both of them on film or tape or whatever! Never saw anything like that again.
 
Second fave: anything Baldwin. Someone needs to root for the underdog! Plus, I was able to grab some pix of a Baldwin switcher in the ex-C&O's Huntington yards. The Baldwin was a switcher (S-12?) lettered for Madison Mines as their No. 1. The unit was hauled dead in train but at least it will live on in photos.
 
Third: GP-9's. Just something workmanlike about these; someone called them an "everyman" locomotive. C&O and B&O had legions of these.
