What are your ugly diesel candidates?:thumb:
I have two, the first is the EMD BL2
And the second would be this pretty face.
It was built by Ingalls Shipbuilding Co. their one and only diesel, thank the Lord
I thought this one was kind of cute in a weird sort of way.
Anything ex-BN... Green Weenies suck!
here is my entry baldwin 1930
SORRY FOR THE SIZE
or this one
...beside myself that DanRaitz and jim currie were allowed to post their offerings!
You've gotta be kidding me right guys? Those are the sweetest, most beautiful, did I mention lovely faces I've ever laid eyes on.
Come to poppa babies- I'll love you:cry:. Forget those nasty, nasty boys.
BL-2s, BL..., well you know what they do.
I love ALCOs well, I like most of em.
Here's the one I think best represents what I like least and yet somehow looks so damn good. Yet, I'd hate the loco in anything but this state.
Horrible "hefalumps" as I remember a old magazine article describing RR repowerings and the odd shapes they'd produce.
Someone will surely post a CNJ "Babyface" (hopefully).
Nice topic to see some neat stuff:thumb:
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
To this "beholder", those are all some great lookin' machines!

Or maybe this one:
Those Baldwin's were one of the biggest diesels that the pennsy owned. They were supposed to be used for passenger service but only saw a short life in passenger service. They were used for freight service and helper service. They were helpers out of altoona to gallitzin.
found my second entry up m10000 art deco loco
with apologies to jon-monon,
my vote goes to that one-eyed Jeep-lookin'
two footer posted by CN1
It's from China. It's based on an old British Jeep frame. It's use to haul coal and other bulk material on a short line.
These are on my list I dislike the cab configueration
Hey CN1, was that taken at American Agrigate near Dayton OH? That used to be an Erie gas electric dottle bug like the one in this photo.
Erie gas electric
I found a 3rd one. A Soo Line F-unit that lost it nose light.
Needs a nose job
Did they come from Emd like that or would that have been a modifcation done buy the railroad?
This was a RR modification, after an accident. Kinda wonder about them guys
Rock Island had an F2A that looked like that Soo Line - it lost its nose headlight in an accident, and the boys at Silvis (IL) Shops rebuilt the nose without the top light.
Ugly diesels? Gotta be any Alcos or Baldwins rebuilt with EMD prime movers, esp. the ones done for Katy.
Second is anything in BNSF Heritage II paint (I shall now duck out of the way of the BNSF fans.. ). Personally, I like the H1 colors- reminds me of the Great Northern.
