Trains and ships on banknotes

Banknotes featuring trains.
I think trains and ships always look good on banknotes.

Here is another attractive Brazillian note, featuring sailing ships in harbour.
Its design is somewhat reminiscent of Irish notes printed by Perkins Bacon in the same era.

Some of the French colonial banknotes are very attractive.
this 5 Franc note is from St Pierre et Miquelon, a French overseas territory near Canada.

Here is an attractive Chinese bank note featuring a ship and a train.
I have not been able to identify the note beyond its being of Chinese origin.

Image

EDIT:
After a reverse image search on the web, I managed to identify the note as being a Bank of Communications 10 dollar note dated 1 September 1912, and located an image of the obverse, which happens to be of the same note!
This may well be quite a rarity.
