  The site of a Union Pacific E-9 streamliner pulling bright yellow passenger cars
through this mountainous canyon was my inspiration for this piece. Understanding
the hard work involved in building a railroad through the mountains inspires a deep
appreciation for the beauty of this train snaking its way through these canyons.

  This scene in Echo Canyon brings out the little boy in all of us, who loves trains and would sit beside the tracks just hoping to hear the roar, smell the smoke and feel the power of a passing locomotive. But most importantly to possibly get a wave from the engineer or a blast of the horn just for him.

The streamlined version of the Baltimore & Ohio's, 4-6-2 was an all-coach train that ran from Baltimore to Cincinnati. Although the train boasted of a 95% on-time performance record, its life of service was short lived. This somewhat unusual looking steam engine in its brilliant blue color with black and gold accent, was strikingly beautiful in a snowy backdrop like "The Cincinnatian in Winter"

This scene depicts not only the striking nose of a Rio Grande F-unit, but it also tells a story. Trains and traveling by train were a major part of past war efforts.
