Thanks for all the fascinating historical info (Dave, Rusty, Chuck, and Tom). I was aware of Loewy’s involvement with the streamlining of the T1 and S1 (and, of course, the GG1), but this is new info to me - one of the things I love about this forum!!!

Paul, believe I am just a big novice with mostly everything on here. I am the guy that only knows the batting average of a few players so to speak. Or the best way to say it, I know steam locomotives have smoke stacks, lol. Skip, Rusty, Chuck, Tom and anyone else for that matter know way more than me. The only thing I do know is that Victor McLaglen starred in a movie called Broadway Limited(1941). I saw part of this on Youtube I think in 2019. I forget what I was looking up but saw that and had a laugh or two. They show some of the scenes of the streamlined K4 Torpedo traveling about with Victor playing the role of the engineer of the train. I only saw the short bit of this and can't remember too much of what was going on other than him having some issues with someone on the train. It is a romantic comedy and what I saw was somewhat funny to me. I think if I watched the entire film I could appreciate it since I usually like old films.
