That model was built between 1941 and 1950. The streamlining was primarily on large passenger locomotives, the ones used on long trips. It was done for better aerodynamics and style.

The trains these engines pulled had fancy names, also. That engine would have run routes called "Powhatan Arrow, Cavalier, and Pocahontas." It was customary for railroads to name their big routes. Other railroads used names like "Arrowhead, Asa Packer, Broadway Limited, Empire Builder, Twentieth Century Limited, etc."
