From the old grey 6x6 train roof sections found in the 12V era, to the smooth ornate boiler pieces used in the Emerald Express, there's been an abundance of different types of roof pieces offered by LEGO. When it comes to your boxcars, cabooses, and other rooved train wagons, do you have a favorite roof-related element? Do you prefer a simpler approach entirely by utilizing standard plates and tiles? Or for a more sophisticated design, do you find yourself combining different roof pieces to make your custom train wagon tops?
Share your thoughts when it comes to choosing your Favorite Train Roof Element.

For oldschool 12V style I use these and 33 degree slopes.
For 9V style I use this and this.
For others it varies, but I really like these, but they are difficult to get in light gray. :(
EDIT: BTW the plural is roofs. ;)

I had a Hogwarts Express set (seen in the bottom left of Brickster's pic), so my brakevan uses those.
BTW, "Rooves" is the older of the plural words but rarely used these days.

This is the one time that I'd like to claim it was just a typo.

I would say my favorite is the dark green roofing used on the Emerald Night
