Pennsylvania S1 at the New York World's Fair, 1939

A staged tongue-in-cheek shot representing the progress made in the 20th century. The new 6-4-4-6 S1 was set up and run on rollers for the entire show season, racking up the equivalent of 50,000 miles. The drive wheels ran on steampower, the bogies and tender wheels were electrically driven.
