Hey Bulldog!

February 9, 2010

KCS F9A "Meridian" at Kendleton, TX on July, 15, 2009

Bulldog nose. That’s the nickname given to the nose design of EMD F-units (E8 and E9’s also).

Why would anyone nickname the graceful, curved lines of the nose of this classic locomotive¬† “bulldog nose”?

Well, I guess that answers that question….

PS – Apologies to The Beatles…
