Vintage Style Steam Engine Poster

Vintage Steam Engine Poster

This beautifully detailed poster would be a great way to give your model train room a piece of art, and a piece of history.

This vintage style 1915 steam locomotive print would be enjoyed by model railway enthusiasts and history buffs alike. They can study the steam engine’s construction, and learn a few new things about their favorite hobby.

The model railway area in our basement used to have a huge poster with a modern locomotive engine. A friend who worked for a railway company gave it to me, and my son loved it! In fact, when my son moved out, he took that poster with him, and this vintage engine picture would be a good replacement.
