...hmmm...lets see:

Well, this is always difficult for me, because I'm basically in love with every EMD locomotive the ATSF ever had: every phase, flavor, color, passenger, freight, switcher, A-unit, B-unit, cowl body, wide cab, spartan cab, road slug, yard slug, Geep & SD alike - no matter; especially ALL units between 1967-1996!!! :D

As for the SP/SSW, it's simple: it would certainly be ALL SP/SSW tunnelmotors - both 40 & 45 versions, the AC4400, the SD70M, and hands down, the mighty SW1500 (i.e. SP #2525)!!!:)
