    Quite right Glenn, and thanks :)

    Here’s a little further info from my web site:

    The S Class was built and remained unstreamlined until 1937, when with the introduction of the new “Spirit Of Progress” carriages the ‘modern’ streamlined look was added to locomotives to match (inspired by the American railroad, Baltimore and Ohio train “The Royal Blue”).

    From that time on on the S Class became the glamour streamliner of the Victorian Railways, which saw the locomotives named after prominent figures from early Victorian history:

    S 300: Matthew Flinders
    S 301: Sir Thomas Mitchell
    S 302: Edward Henty
    S 303: C J La Trobe

    With the demands of the Spirit Of Progress run between Melbourne and Albury including . . . a trailing load of up to 600 tons and sections with greater than a 1 in 50 gradient . . . the S Class was at the time the only passenger locomotive on the Victorian railways with enough power for the task.
