They were actually developed as a much more fuel-efficient alternative to turbine locomotives, and were popular, smooth-riding powerhouses for highball freight. The GE turbine offerings they replaced used twice the fuel of an equivalent diesel.

On that side of the Mississippi, I'm partial to the New Haven's designs on their Alco diesels. Simple, striking, modernist.

Even their printed materials like annual reports and menus are sharp:

Posting something made 70 years ago hardly counts as aesthetic. Especially since the times of SD7 and GP7 american locomotives are, essentially, boxes on wheels.
