"Speed and Security"
Eastbound Broadway Limited headed by a powerful K4 steam locomotive No. 5357, east end of Rockville Bridge, five miles north of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Milepost 110. The Rockville Bridge, completed March 30, 1902 and stretching for almost three-quarters of a mile across the Susquehanna River, can still be seen today. The popularity of the 1925 calendar was so great that requests for it exhausted supply, and so the PRR used the same painting for its calendar the following year, but identified the train on the 1926 calendar as the New Yorker.
