Here is a shot of #802 at the B&O RR Museum.  This was taken on Jan. 8, 1984.  I never got to see them in operation, but always liked the way they look.  
Don't forget, the B&O RR Museum still needs your help.

Great Thread! I like EP-4, E-44, EL-2B and this one #802...

Being from the west coast, I am pretty much a fan of the locomotives GREAT NORTHERN used in Cascade Tunnel, those had power, and I heard that they sometimes were used in trains powered by steam and diesel as well.
 
My ultimate favorite, had to be the little engine that could, the Little Joes used on the Chicago, South Shore and South Bend, and the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, and Pacific(a.k.a Milwaukee Road).  They could pull trains across Indiana, or through the Rocky Mountains, and were not even built for the Americas, but for RUSSIA.

 Very true about the Little Joes ( for "Joe" Stalin) . . .  the only reason they remained in the U.S. was the advent of the cold war and the resulting deterioration of relations between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. in  the late 1940's

Hi All,
 
Actually I like the "little Joes" fine. However, I will put this engine against that one anytime.
 
Check out this one.

And of course "Little" Joes were anything but little, but were a massive 2-D+D-2 electric engine.  Looks-wise, they were slightly similar to the New Haven's EP-4...

  The "little" was for "Little Joe" Stalin----- who was small in stature, but big on nastiness!

Hi Walt,
 
You got that right. Psychologists call that the "Napoleon Syndrome". Sort of an overcompensation.

I know some conductors and trainmen in Washington who are like that.

Hi Walt,
 
As an Attorney, you will appreciate this. Until he passed away, my next door neighbor was a Judge of the Superior Court, San Bernardino County. He as well fit into that category. All was well, until you disagreed with him. Then watch out, he would come down on you with both feet.

Hi Walt,
 
I appeared before one two days ago, Jury Duty. On this one, a forcible rape of a mentally incompetent by a chiropractor, I copped a plea of prejudice and was dismissed, fortunately. This was a lady judge and was a " Robe-ite". My wife thought it was an interesting case. I thought it paralleled Kobe Bryant, and wanted nothing to do with it. LOL.

Those kinds of cases are UGLY!  I tried those kinds of cases during my days as a criminal prosecutor.---- The Kobe Bryant case is not exactly the same kind of case, in that the issue there is not the legal impropriety of the sexual encounter ( as it is in a case of sex with a legally incompetent person), but whether the sex was consensual.-- Of course if the case you almost had involved force, you would have had both non-consensual AND legally prohibited sex involved.--- These cases are "fun" for no one!

Hi Walt,  
 
You got that right.  Once the particulars of the case were related to us by Madame Judge, everyone tensed up, and some women raised their hands and asked to be excused since they had personal experience with the situation. The two attornies didn't even crack a smile, throughout the procedure of jury selection. The defendant, by the way, had a poker face as well.  
 
Back to the original thread: Anyone like these engines ?

Ah yes---- the P-5a ( and P-5a modified) the predecessor to the GG1. Actually, the R-1, which "lost" the "great locomotive contest" to the GG1 was mostly an enlarged version of the P-5a class.------ A VERY good group of locomotives--- it's just that the GG1 was more powerful, eliminating the need to double head units on "heavy" trains, and tracked somewhat better.

From your discription, It is a massive locomotive. In fact, I once saw one, a preserved example in Deer Lodge, Montana. Fitting that the Milwaukee Road would choose to preserve a Little Joe there, are any other Little Joes preserved?

There is a former South Shore "Joe" preserved at the Illinois RR Museum.  Also the B&O RR Museum used to have a Joe, also ex-South Shore, but I heard it got sold to another museum; I don't know which one.
