Definitely E 95 from Brawa. The sound of two engines. Beautiful
When I was a child back in Poland I often travel between Hirshberg (now Jelenia Gora) and Breslau(Wroclaw). It was exactly the same rail road where E 95 was operate around 1930 to 1945.

The Brawa e95 is gorgeous. Cool pic - there are so few pics of the e95.

I'll have to dig around to see where I've found them. I haven't bookmarked or downloaded any :(

Clipers, while trying to find the e95 pics I've seen before (only 3 or 4) I came across this site (scroll to the bottom): http://www.zackenbahn.de/e_95.htm.

As a side note, it's interesting to see that it always used both pantographs.

Aha! From what I've been able to find, there is one left in existence (this must be it) and there has been talk for years of restoring it but so far the funding has not been available.

Man, I bet that loco would look bad Haggis in all black. If I have time, one of these days I'll photoshop a Ludmila in NS paint.

That would look bad-ass alright. Even more Bad-AssTM would be a picture of one hauling a coal drag around Horseshoe Curve!

A guaranteed method of weight loss would be to paint one (or any locomotive) as a CSX engine, though. If the sight does not make you vomit, it will at least make you not hungry anymore....... :D
