#3 I guess… they’re all pretty underwhelming IMO

Looks like a CP vote, lets get some ideas from the KCS folks.

If I could stop yawning, I might pick #2. Maybe they could just go with solid red, paint a very large beaver down each side, and stacked flags for the countries they serve on the nose and tail.

I'd go with #1 just to keep solid red from being quite so overbearing...

Option 5 for sure.  Like the black roof and extra striping similar to KCS at least

I'm thinking combine 3 and 5 - the nose tripes and the upper/lower trim would be quite elegant.

Underwhelming is most cost effective (cheap!).  The
dark roof will help to cover up some of the filth present
on many of the CP units currently.

One thing the designs show is that Canadian Pacific Kansas City
is not long for this world. The company will be soon known just
by its initials "CPKC", otherwise the full name would be spelled
out on the long hood in at least one version.

Agreed.

They might as well borrow CSX's suitcase and be honest with the name.    CP(kc)

In order of preference, I would say 1,4,3,5,2... 5 looks good clean but I think it might look weird when the loco is faded and dirty, much like BNSF H2,  which also has a fat, bright sill stripe like that. 2 is the only one I really dislike, though.

None. They need a scheme with a larger proportion of black to red and maybe more yellow striping thrown in.

In my opinion, #3 is the best-- although I'm not an employee so my vote means doodly-squat!

Here's my proposed option 6.

I don't hate option #3

Would 3, 4, 5 look better with a yellow sill stripe? UP does it, so CPKC could.

I like #4 best, but some of these are like being at the optometrist- "Which is better?  "A" or "B"?"
