I would guess that it would be more of a steam-electric or steam turbine electric and bear little resemblance to the steamers we so loved in the past. Also it would certainly have to have m.u. capability thus eliminating the need for a crew on every "unit". It would have several water tenders much resembling those on UP's Gas Turbines to reduce water stops.

I doubt it would display the powerful exhaust plumes or flashing siderods of the traditional steam locomotive and be much more generic in design as are diesels. All in all a bit disappointing but maybe just a bit more intriguing than the current diesels. It might still have the hissing and crackling sounds of old.
