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.
