“The First Train” (STG 192a). This shows a “Rocket” type locomotive drawing a coal car with two and a half open wagons. It is Locomotion No 1. Two variants were produced, one with black and bright green wagons (as here, a 4* rarity), and one with black and brown (STG 192, 3* rarity). Quite a difficult image to find especially without it being faded. The mount is B type and the trade label 19b dating it to 1881. It was not produced after 1887. The silk is in excellent condition, the colours bright and true. The mount is in good condition as the pictures show.
