Re: Does TOS Still Look Futuristic to You?

Not saying he mightn't have seen that locomotive at some point, but here's what Taylor said about the nacelles:
My approach was to kind of "art-deco-size-it" in a way. I spent weeks drawing and re-drawing and designing the nacelles. I mean the front-end of the nacelles was almost a 40 Ford grille. But I tried to make it have a very art-deco feel; for example I added the parallel lines along the edge of the saucer.

P.S. The locomotive in question is a C & O Chesapeake & Ohio M-1 Steam Turbine Locomotive.
