1948 - PRR T1 5536: 120mph plus?

120mph plus

(23" x 9") on heavy paper trimmed 25" x 12"

Diesels are taking over, but steam isn't dead yet: witness this 120mph run of PRR T1 5536. Someplace between Van Wert, Ohio and Fort Wayne, Indiana, 5536's speedometer needle was hard against the peg set at 120mph! Who can say 120 was the maximum speed that day? Relive this ride as the print tries to show 5536 at top speed! What a thrill it must have been for the enginemen! The only things missing from this print are real smoke, real cinders, real dust, 15 cars of PRR No. 43, and the noise. But we caught the engine and tender, by God!
