    Hands down, Southern railway F7’s. Love the paint scheme and the historic glamor of the engines themselves.

    Definitely a pair of Amtrak F40PHs, painted in Phase 3. Those engines epitomized “Amtrak” to me growing up.

    My private cars would have to be lead by Alco cab units, particularly the freight engines. An A-B-A set of FA-2’s or an A-B-A set of FA-1’s. First class all the way.
