Lord knows I love the AEM-7 but since they were rebuilt, they suck! They're like so boring. I think Septa AEM-7s looks better. I wish they were more colorful. Other news, when Amtrak had GG-1's I think they had the right idea when they painted them silver with red hoods and a blue strip. Imagine seeing a GG-1 in Phase 3, or 4 paint? I wish. I'm not to sure about phase 5. Why? AEM-7, that's why.

Hello,

 

 

I honestly have to choose the AEM-7. The HHP-8 locomotives remind me too much of the Acela and don't really go along with the Amfleet cars. The AEM-7's seem to belong with the Amfleet cars.

 

 

That's my personal opinion. Feel free to comment.:P

You forgot to add the Metroliner to the poll. If you're including the Acela, you should include the Metroliner.

I voted acela, because i VERY OFTEN get to walk past them, or have one stop or go through a station i'm at, and yea, they are either a blur lasting 5 seconds, or they are slow and very loud humming with all that streamlined power under gleaming stainless steel.

 

This however does not mean i do not have great affection for other electric locomotive equipment, such as the GG1, and even the AEM7! :cool:
