Bankruptcy Blue is great, however I think any of the 5 schemes in this pic are superior. Hard to pick a favorite, there were a lot of great schemes running around in the late 1960s and early 70s.

GN's Big Sky Blue was a short-lived but memorable scheme. Looked especially great on those big F45s.

Knowing the history of the SP and its reputation as the quintessential soulless corporate "octopus," this is a great scheme since it really embodies the "monolithic industrial corporation" aesthetic. Arguably Penn Central did it better but with much less character.

I loved nothing more than seeing this trains at the old Kyneton station when I was a kid. Orange and Grey is such a great scheme, green highlights top it off.

BR should have painted all its steam locos blue, prove me wrong.

Brunswick Green on the passenger locos, lined Black on mixed traffic, and plain Black on freight. The only correct answer.

Maroon coaches.

I'll always have a bit of a soft spot for SP just because it's the "local" railroad. I live only a few minutes from what used to be one of their biggest yards.

>>1264378

This was probably gonna be my vote. I know exactly where the second shot was taken, it's about 20 minutes from my house, first one looks pretty close too. I like the red and sliver version a lot too though.

I agree, but Brunswick for local service passenger locos, and Blue for express passenger locos

red is way sexier

The blue creme scheme on the first batch EF66 where absolute sex. The JNR creme and maroon is also great.

Its Spanish cousin, the RENFE Class 251, in its original livery (which the 251.004 still wears to this day) doesn't look bad either.

Most likely nobody thinks it's necesarry. Keep in mind Croatia is much smaller then let's say Australia. In case of serious work needs to be done the locos roll to the repair shop asap, which is a thing of a few hours.

I thought you might be referring to that, but that's just as bad. You should make waist height rail so you have a chance of not going off the side.

They were designed to be fascinating and aesthetic. And also not deathtraps for their crew at grade crossings.
>>
>>1263304
because they're the weirdest looking locomotives of the 20th and 21st century. the only thing that comes close is the F59PHI.
