Decapod sale

It can be purchased for 335 gold, and many players avoid spending their gold on anything else. It can also be purchased for cash, and about once a month there is a 50% off sale. Occasionally on sale for cash (most recently for US$8.59).

A Decapod is also the prize for the Daily Bonus on Day 30 (and if you go through the full 90 day bonus cycle, also on Day 120)

The only locomotive which is better is the Hurricane, which can also pull three carriages, and has the added bonus of granting more chances to obtain managers and items. But the Hurricane can only be purchased with actual currency, and at US$56, it is not even remotely worth it.
