    Franco & Crosti boilers never fail to bring the ugly, that's for sure.

    I think that locomotive was one of the ugliest of the steam era in Spain.

    Meanwhile in Belgium..




    The caption for this photo.......
    THE WORLD’S STRANGEST STEAM LOCOMOTIVE, the first of the new “Franco” articulated type, on test in Belgium. The main central unit houses two boilers and fireboxes and the compartments occupied by the driver and his two firemen. The engine has the unusual wheel formula of 0-6-2 + 2-4-2-4-2 + 2-6-0.

    Really a strange mix that would not win a beauty contest.

    It is interesting that the first and the last of the Franco (Franco-Crosti) locos were equally ugly. In my opinion only the British 2-10-0 9F ones managed to look reasonably normal.

    Early Union Pacific streamlined locomotives. Their M10000 units and an early streamlined passenger steamer both used the mud and yellow and red that just looked like a failure to me. Designs were beautiful, paint was horrid. Next...

    @griffinjim Lol, I hardly recognise the BR Class 66 in the last one!
    I don't find these ugly, just weird!

    Default I said this a long time back in this Thread, but I'll say it again

    I believe that there is no locomotive that everyone agrees on that is ugly. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. To me, the appearance of a train is more unusual than others, which is what this thread boils down to: The train's appearance to a person. I don't find trains ugly or not, I just like some more than others. For example: Someone might call The Flying Scotsman ugly, while others don't consider it ugly.

    Speaking of Franco Crosti boilers, what Bulleid did to this K3 is criminal. (Converted to peat burning loco).

    Someone might have posted this already,but this one just yells ugly to me...



    According to the Wikipedia,this is a Russian Diesel-steam hybrid locomotive... and this has to be one of the ugliest I have seen yet.
    ... failure is always an option!
