This is the original Gouache painting by John J Arnold.

The Streamliners: Pennsylvania Railroad Streamlined "Mallets". 52 of these trains were built for the Pennsylvania Railroad. They weighed more than 1,000 tons and could travel at over 100m.p.h. The tender alone weighed more than the largest locomotive and tender combined that was ever used on a British Railway. The unique wheel formation was 6-4-4-6 although a version with shorter overhangs and less streamlining was produced with a 4-4-4-4 set.

Original artwork from Look and Learn no. 633 (2 March 1974).
