These things are brilliant, and attractive in an angular sort of way.
To my British eyes, they look like an Electric version of a Class 50 but that's really stretching it!
I think the type is an E60, and they were introduced around 1975, they replaced the ex Penn Central GG1's in the North East corridor.
I purchased a Bachmann HO scale Model in 1988, which I still have.
