Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

I just found this streamliner train on Wiki and thought it was great. According to the article:

Preserved British steam locomotive of the former London, Midland and Scottish (LMS) Railway, Princess Coronation Class No. 6229 Duchess of Hamilton, 6 June 2009. The locomotive was built as a streamliner in 1938 in a blue and silver livery, and was exported to the United States (painted as Class sister No. 6220) for a 3,000 mile tour and visit to the 1939 New York World's Fair, before returning in 1942. The streamlining was removed in 1947 for ease of maintenance. She was re-streamlined in 2009 and put on display at the National Railway Museum in York.

Finally re-streamlined!
I've got a batch of her pre-2009 photos. A beauty.

These are some of my favorite trains. All of the streamliners that appeared just before the engines all went diesel are super sexy.
