Nice picture! Ugly or otherwise, this loco is a great workhorse. I've always wondered why most diesel locos in India don't have dual cabs?

Frankly, it does not appear ugly to me.....a lot has been said about its triangular (or pentagonal?) end, but to me it looks quite attractive & different from the boring boxy lines of WDMs.

Right ! no loco can ever be termed as an "ugly duckling" It would have been a dream come true had this loco been rated at 5000 BHP.
