Belgian “Atlantic” Class streamline steam locomotive

Belgian “Atlantic” Class streamline steam locomotive

Big, unique, and impressive C&O steam is on display at the B&O museum. 490 is the sole surviver of only four streamlined Hudson type (4-6-4) locomotives owned by the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad. It was rebuilt by the C&O in 1946 from a Pacific type (4-6-2) locomotive. The original Pacific was built by the Richmond division of the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) in 1926. 490 was donated to the Baltimore & Ohio Museum in Baltimore, MD in 1971 from the C&O Historical Collection. It is also…

In the late 1940’s, due to significant post war backorders of diesel and modernized passenger equipment, The B Railroad, along with rival C Railroad, streamlined a few steam locomotives and upgraded existing passenger equipment in an effort to boost rail traffic. This limited edition train print showcases the B 4-6-2, P7 #5301 (The Cincinnatian) alongside the C 4-6-4 L1 Hudson #490 (The George Washington) at Cincinnati Union Terminal.

1935 Goodyear-Zeppelin Comet - a "duckbilled" streamlined diesel-electric "trainset" - a term used for trains that are permanently joined together as a single articulated unit, with each car sharing a set of wheels with the preceding one. Windtunnel-tested, the "duckbill" design is exceedingly aerodynamic, and an exaggerated form is used by Japanese and other highspeed rail systems today.

150 Years of Great American Trains - Union Pacific 119 -  On May 10, 1869, Central Pacific Railroad chief Leland Stanford used a golden hammer to pound a single golden spike into the ground, joining the tracks of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads in Promontory Summit, Utah. Beside Stanford were two trains -- the Central Pacific's Jupiter, and the Union Pacific's 119.
