THE POWER OF IMAGES. A recent Economist article on executive compensation included this cartoon.


Classic industrial art. The British claim that Flying Scotsman is the world's most famous steam locomotive, and they claim a world steam speed record, and they have a legitimate high speed link from St. Pancras to the Channel Tunnel. The power for the Gravy Train, however, is a Pennsylvania Railroad duplex drive (note the second cylinder exhausting midships). There's a model of this engine in the Cold Spring Shops library.
