Steam engines were rarely streamlined in the States.

Norfolk and Western’ J class 4-8-4 locomotives might have been the most numerous ones streamlined.Think they even streamlined a few of their K class 4-8-2s. 

Southern Railway streamlined one of their Pacifics so The Tennessean could be considered a streamlined train from Washington DC to Memphis TN.

Railroad passenger traffic was declining rapidly as air travel and better highways competed. So little incentive to streamline steam.
