Seems the Pennsy were REALLY obsessed with beating the Twentieth Century Limited along the Broadway…

…. only to end up merged in the 70’s.

Steam and stream… line. That is interbellum technology on rails.

That is a contrast to the well known steam trains. But in the 1930s streamlining was a issue.

Another giant steam locomotive from Germany. It is a Borsig express train from the 03 series. This one built in 1933 with 1980 horsepower, nearly 24 meter length and a top speed of 130 km/h.

Bet you can’t do THAT with a diesel locomotive!

Since I started traveling by train as preferred vehicle this year at some point the interbellum aspect came in. Here a locomotive from the Wiener Lokfabrik built in 1940. It is the 23 m long 50° series. Looks like hard work to be a loco driver and fireman.
