EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR takes us back in time to a bygone era, specifically around 1910. The focal point of this image is Locomotive No 3374, famously known as Baden Powell. This magnificent steam engine was part of the Atbara class locomotives and was constructed in 1900. In this particular snapshot, Baden Powell stands resplendent and adorned for a momentous occasion - the Royal Train. The locomotive proudly displays a crown on its front, symbolizing its role in transporting royalty during special journeys. On each side of the train, one can spot intricately designed royal coat of arms that add an air of regality to this already majestic machine. The photograph not only captures the grandeur and elegance associated with railway travel but also serves as a testament to the importance placed on transportation during that era. It provides us with a glimpse into how even trains were meticulously decorated for significant events such as royal visits or state occasions. As we admire this historical artifact frozen in time, it reminds us of both our rich heritage and technological advancements over the years. The STEAM Museum's collection allows us to appreciate not just individual locomotives like Baden Powell but also their broader significance within society at large.
