STG198 A modern six-carriage express train travelling from left to right, with a tunnel in left background. Telegraph poles and trees in background. No driver leaning out of 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, [st496 on this site], a driver is leaning slightly from his cab and the front bumper is level with a telegraph-pole. The other version, above, 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.
