Italian DeLuxe Electric Train
From Paul (Derby, UK):
Although on the face of it, this may look like one complete train on display, it is actually a collection of three:
- a high speed 3-car articulated electric multiple unit called the ETR 200, built by BREDA;
- then a coupled 2-car electric unit built by FIAT - Marelli;
- and finally a single diesel railcar FS ALn 556.2250 built by BREDA.
Comment from Chris Barkan:
I think it quite likely to be from the Italian State Railways. "FS", which is marked on the car, are the initials for Ferrovie dello Stato (State Railways). Furthermore its size and 4-wheel design are characteristic of European freight "wagon" construction in general.
Pennsylvania RR - S-1 #6100
The world's larges and heaviest steam locomotive built exclusively for passenger service. Built by the Pennsylvania RR at the Altoona, PA shop. The Pennsylvania Railroad's class S1 comprised a single steam locomotive of 6-4-4-6 wheel arrangement in the Whyte notation, the only locomotive of such arrangement ever constructed. Built in 1939 and retired in 1945.
