Description:  Here is a postal card entitled "World's Fastest Locomotive. Pennsylvania Railroad's No. 7002 ~ Record 127.1 Miles an Hour. Chicago Railroad Fair 1949.'" No Postmark. Caption On Reverse: "The world's fastest run by a railroad train was made by the 'Broadway Limited' of the Pennsylvania Railroad on Monday, June 12,1905, when it ran 127.1 miles an hour between AY Tower and Elida, Ohio. The 'Broadway Limited' was pulled by coal-burning steam Locomotive 7002 ~ and although many swift runs have been made in recent years by steam, electric, and diesel locomotives, none has equalled the 127.1 mile-an-hour record established in 1905. At the Chicago Railroad Fair of 1949, Locomotive 7002 stands on a section of P.R.R. standard roadbed with rails weighing 155 pounds to the yard ~ heaviest in the world." The photographer is not identified. This #7002 is an E-7SA (4-4-2) "Atlantic" built in Juniata as E-2A number "8063" during 1902, rebuilt as an E-7SA in October of 1918, withdrawn from service in August of 1939, renumbered "7002" in June of 1949, and presently on display at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in Strasburg.
