The old, awesome Chicago, Burlington, & Quincy's Zephyr, and her beautiful art-deco styled E unit lead passengers past one of the old Burlington Northern's Executive Train F units underneath an overcast prairie sky. Illinois Railway Museum in Union IL 7-22-12

Does the e's nose have a less steep angle or is the an optical illusion?

The Burlington's nose has far more of a rake, the BN unit looks awful close to 90*. I think that may have been part of the E's styling as part of the Zephyr consist. Personally, i like both sleek, aerodynamic look of the Zephyr and the more utilitarian, almost blunt F equally!

both beautiful machines, indicative of their era where your company's appearance was advertising in itself.

Now most roads don't even want to wash or properly maintain their equipment! Union Pacific spent a small fortune laying the groundwork for a series of wash racks and promised they were going to give each unit a thorough bath at every opportunity, but all work stopped after the foundations, plumbing, and all that were installed. And i've yet to see one clean unit in regular service!
