Coloured print of a Great Northern Railway locomotive pulling royal carriages containing Queen Victoria (1819-1901) and her party. The locomotive is pasing through a triumphal arch, probably en route to Scotland. 'Albion', the name given to the locomotive, was probably added by the artist, as the Great Northern Railway did not name their locomotives until much later.
