EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR, we are transported back to a momentous occasion in 1927 when King George V and his esteemed team embarked on an extraordinary journey across the Atlantic. As part of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad centenary celebrations in America, the iconic locomotive named after the monarch takes center stage, exuding power and grandeur. Standing proudly before this magnificent steam engine are four individuals who played an integral role in its operation. From left to right, we see George Dando, William Young, George Pearce, and Fred Williams - their faces reflecting a mix of pride and excitement for being part of such a historic event. The image captures not only the technological marvel that was King George V but also serves as a testament to international cooperation and friendship between nations. The visit by British royalty symbolized unity between two great powers during a time when travel across continents was still considered awe-inspiring. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, it is impossible not to be swept away by nostalgia for an era defined by innovation and ambition. This photograph encapsulates both Britain's rich railway heritage embodied by King George V as well as America's celebration of progress through rail transportation. Through this remarkable visual artifact preserved at STEAM Museum of GWR, we can relive history while appreciating how far we have come since those pioneering days on rails.
