The Gresley A4 streamliner must be the most beautiful of all the steam locomotives. This high speed machine epitomises the futuristic designs of the 1930s.  I wonder what a space rocket would have looked like if designed by Sir Nigel Gresley.

What a fine looking railway engine for its time Joy. It certainly looked futuristic, and still looks of modern design I think. - Dave
