Your favorite locomotive

Post by Train-a-Mania »

I'm a steam engine person, but I know that some prefer diesel's or electrics.

My favorite is Canadian Pacific's 2317. It currently resides in Steamtown, Scranton, PA.

Weh! My two favorite engines in the world! :D
My 3 favorites are Mallard, Flying Scotsman & City of Truro
Went to York one day, Saw Mallard and Flying Scotsman in the National Railway museum, then waiting in the station for our train back to Stevenage, and the City Of Truro pulls in. 3 of my favorites in one day! :D

My favorite diesel has to be the Virgin Voyager.
Im not sure about my favorite Electric. Probably the Eurostar (Euro Tunnel and GNER livery)
