Typically of Georges Carette, the lithography is very, very nice - at first sight it appears the the railings above the tender have spaces punched out in the tinplate beneath them, but the sides are simple continuous tinplate, with the "spaces" coloured in a lighter colour to give the impression of light shining through.
The original locomotive
Number 1442 was the "showcase" locomotive chosen in 1908 by GNR to pull the Royal Train.
