The 5 Best Looking Electric Locomotives Ever Made
After enjoying Andy’s thread so much I thought I would try a thread on the 5 best looking or favorite electric locomotives. My 5 picks are as follows: 1. GG1 in Brunswick green and with 5 stripes is the best looking for all-time 2. P5a has similar character of a GG1 3. EP-5 Jet in the McGinnis paint scheme 4. E-44 always amazes me how nice a box can look 5. EP-4 very elegant So what are your top 5 electrics and why?

GN 174316 in Topeka
Rocky Lives! This great looking relic of Great Northern's Big Sky Blue era has been hidden away in BNSF's Topeka, KS yard for a few weeks now, but has seemingly been hidden until today. The car is STILL lettered as the GN 174316 and is a 1969 product of Ortner and one of 125 in the batch. More can be found on these cars here: www.greatnorthernempire.net/index2.htm?GNEWoodchipCars.htm
