Bulldogs! Its the nickname given to EMD locomotives with those huge big round noses at the front.
They have certainly built up a large legion of fans who develop strange tingles on hearing their bark coming up a steep grade or roaring out of a yard.
Its a fetish I have never been able to understand, afterall we have the lovely 44 class, but none the less much foam is dropped at the site of them. Indeed some magazines have made a living out of them.
Still as dribblers we are lucky to have such old derelicts in the country and must appreciate them while we do.
Sadly one day they will be all worn out and be good for little more than melting down to make more cr, ahhmmm quality Korean car products.
Of course I am just talking about the Bulldogs. We all know ALCos never wear out.
