The Southern Serves The South by markkarvon The Southern Serves The South by markkarvon
"The Southern Serves The South" was the slogan of the Southern Railway in the US. Here's my latest railroad piece. It depicts a Southern Railway Type Ps-4 Pacific locomotive. The Southern was reknowned for keeping their locomotives in pristine condition. Most railfans agree this was the most beautiful Pacific type locomotive ever made. I agree.

The green paint scheme was copied from the Southern Railway in England. The owner of the Southern Railway (US) made a trip to England and was so taken by the green paint scheme they used he implemented it on his railroad. It was an instant hit.

Looks like a 4-6-4. Am I right, or am I off target?

It is a 4-6-2 Pacific.

Your work is absolutely incredible. Some of it is so good that it takes a few moments to realize its art, not photography!
Absolutely spectacular work sir!
