WP 4 - 6 - 2 Pacific

This is a scan of a tattered print I proudly possess. It seems to be from a calendar. The loco is WP1 and the Serial number is 7724 of the Southern Railways. The Train board is Nilagiri Express (6 Up).

The picture is by M.S. Burns.

The caption below this print is: “Indian Railways Class WP1, No. 7724 - Ultimate development of the steam locomotive in India. Built by Indian Railways at their Chittaranjan Locomotive Works. Gauge 5' 6", 4-6-2 Pacific type.”
