In the late 1940’s, due to significant post war backorders of diesel and modernized passenger equipment, The B Railroad, along with rival C Railroad, streamlined a few steam locomotives and upgraded existing passenger equipment in an effort to boost rail traffic. This limited edition train print showcases the B 4-6-2, P7 #5301 (The Cincinnatian) alongside the C 4-6-4 L1 Hudson #490 (The George Washington) at Cincinnati Union Terminal.
