Remarks & Notes 
The 14E/14E1s are rated by many as the ugliest looking locomotives on TFR. The designers of the prototypes at SLM certainly did not have aesthetics in mind when they drew up the bodywork! Two 'ugly ducklings' are seen here in charge of the luxury Blue Train, exiting Tunnel 3 (1.2Km long) on the Hex River Tunnel System. They only have 700m to go before entering the longest tunnel of the system (13.2Km).
