STG198a - same title and design as STG 198 except that the locomotive is a much larger type. The left bumper of the engine is level with the first telegraph pole and the driver is leaning out of the cab.

by Geoffrey Godden:
The fourth type of train to appear above this title is found in two different versions. The general view shows a six-coach train travelling diagonally from left to right.
In one version, above, a driver is leaning slightly from his cab and the front bumper is level with a telegraph-pole. The other version [st500] has a smaller engine, not level with the telegraph-pole, and the driver is not visible.
Both versions are of twentieth-century date and are found on type E card-mounts. The title THE EXPRESS TRAIN given on some late printed labels probably relates to these Stevengraphs.
