Without a doubt the best passenger train of the streamliner years.

Thanks. The reference photo I used to get my perspective was actually a Southern Pacific F unit.

I used to watch these come through my home town as a child--incredible machines. You do truly superior work, of subjects many silly artists won't deign to draw.

Thank you very much. There is a nostalgic appeal to the early diesels. There is a genre of aviation and railroad art out there. It is not the most popular but our collectors are devoted.

The 'Foamers' are an international group. I have a friend in Britain who sent me a picture of an Allegheny. Then there's the 'Harry Potter' crowd, they could be ga ga over worse forms of transportation. I love the new Burlington 'War Chiefs,' it's still a lovely paint scheme.

I remember when the Lego company made the Super Cheif for Lego trains, ah if only I had the money back then I would buy it.

It is very hard to tell whether or not this is a photograph or not. Very well done, and very photo realistic. It is amazing.

I think the background quickly shows that it is not an actual photo, but when I see the detail of the air hoses at the front, or the trucks, I can't help thinking that this kind of detail is almost insane for a painting :XD:

It does look insane at this resolution but keep in mind this image was originally created as a 20" x 24" at 300 dpi. At that large of size and resolution it is easy to concentrate on detail.

Awesome scene. Passenger trains and especially their locomotives were meant to be depicted this way.
