That's better than nothing. I entered the prize draw for its 2016 return railtour (my mum insisted we do so) and got nothing.

Challenge Accepted!

I just wanted to say that I picture Ponyville having a tank engine as it's main engine, but the one I'd choose wouldn't be able to do very good going to Canterlot and back.

The engine I'd choose would have to be a LBSCR 0-6-0 E2. Of course it would most likely work in the yard, due to not having a large enough coal bunker for long trips, but I personally think it would do pretty good.

Now, I wouldn't really say the LNER Turbine, yea, it looks fairly similar to to Black 5, but I'm not rally a fan of British locomotives.

But what really popped into my mind, is the Union Pacific Challenger #3985

It hauled a intermodeal train, it carried passengers along UP trackage, and god damn, it did a mighty good job at it.

10-4 Dispatch, Railroad9111, out!

My favorite train is the german BR-52 steam locomotive.

Well. What an interesting place I've stumbled in to. Didn't know this was a thing. But I like trains and MLP... so... Yeah...
Oh, have any of you ever thought about Japanese steam engines? I think some fit Equestria really well.
like the C56
Or the Class 8620
Sorry they're just links. Don't know how to get pictures on this place.

I'd never see that day indeed! I simply had to join, besides, I was thinking that if the Crystal Empire has technological advances, I was thinking that maybe Canterlot could have the technology to create engines that don't draw attention in service and the type of engine that comes to mind is the London, Midland, Scottish Railways Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 MT Tender engine, or the LMS Black Five (Henry the Green Engine's basis in Thomas and Friends.)upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d6/Bishops_Lydeard_-_44767.jpg
