    I'm usually stuck testing things, so I don't run it often, but my favourite MSTS locomotive is still Danny's ATSF GP35:

    Besides the GP7/9 series being my favorite, I also favor the GP35's, no matter what road.

    Nice photos Erick.

    Default It may not be the model, but the individual locomotive

    Man, the GP30's and 35's definitely have a run for the money in my opinion, but my favorite unit is the first one I ever ran. The Monticello Railway Museum was in the process of restoring their Wabash F7A and needed some cash, so they sold tickets to operate the engine for 30 minutes. It appears that this may be more common these days as I recently have seen several museums advertise the same experience, but back then it was the first I had ever heard of it. I was very young, my dad took me out with him to check it out, and I still vividly remember how easy the throttle was to pull.

    Here is ex-Long Island 1559 as MRM 301:



    The Wabash boxcar looks right at home behind it!

    Before it came to the museum, it was Maryland Midland #301. I don't know where the color came from, perhaps the Long Island's last paint scheme?




    I have had the pleasure of running #301 several times now, but it has a different number and paint job these days. Out of service for mechanical work, it may be a little while before anyone can run it again. I used Dick Cowen's model to paint these locomotives, with some fonts from Pete Willard.

    I always liked "Ludmilla", the "Great Russian" or more plainly class 132/232.

    Of all the locomotives I like, NS's Dash 9-40CWs (don't ask me why) would be my most favorite:
