EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR, we are transported back to a momentous occasion in British history - Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897. The image showcases the magnificent sight of the royal train, pulled by none other than the illustrious locomotive known as The Queen. With its regal stature and adorned with two grand crests and a crown at its front, The Queen stands as a symbol of power and prestige. Originally named Emlyn in 1894, this Achilles class locomotive earned its new name when it was chosen to haul the royal train for such an important event. The photograph captures not only the physical beauty of The Queen but also serves as a testament to Victorian-era engineering prowess. As steam billows gracefully from its stack, one can almost hear the rhythmic chugging sound that echoed through towns and countryside alike during those times. This snapshot freezes a moment in time when royalty met innovation on wheels. It is a reminder of how railways played an integral role in connecting people and places during Queen Victoria's reign. This particular locomotive carried her majesty across vast distances while leaving an indelible mark on history. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece of artistry captured by our ancestors' lenses, let us be reminded of both our rich heritage and technological advancements that continue to shape our world today.
