In 1936 through the services of industrial designers, streamlining
came to Pennsy passenger service. Top designers worked in collaboration with the
Pennsy's Engineering Department conducting extensive wind tunnel tests with
clay models. The finished locomotive 3768 was publicized at the opening of
the 1938 Worlds Fair painted in a bronze paint scheme. Later the engine
would be painted in the same scheme but in Brunswick green. Other
streamlining treatments were given the Pennsy's passenger fleet, but the work on 3768 set the standard.
