...and that's a good looking 1927 coupe. It's fun to see the U P train in the snow.
Enjoy
Rich

Oddly enough, a friend of mine who works in one of the fancy buildings in Dearborn gave me a copy of that same calendar. It was on the 'free' table at work!

It's going up in the garage... next time I wander out that way.

Great framed pictures too! Looks like a nice room!

Hmm, that looks suspiciously like the Sierra #3, star of film & TV. :-)

OT, but the Sierra #3 is one of the subjects of the "Ultimate Restorations" series, they are great videos! I have no connection to the organization or the site other than as a very satisfied customer.

Not a Model T, but a swell picture.

Steve, that really is a swell picture!:-)

Rick, that link was incredible! I used my phone to see those engines. Wowee!

George, a home graced with any of Richard's paintings would be a very warm house indeed.
OR
The lady gave you wall space? Yeehaw!
Would you do me a favor and post a pic of that print in between the coil rebuilding station and the Champion plugs print?

Great picture Steve!

I have been to that railroad twice (The Wiscasset Waterville and Farmington Railway). It is one of the few places in the world that really feels like a place from the early 1900's. Not only that, it runs on volunteers only.

They have a forum here,

Both those pictures look like Rich Eagle painting! (Rich; hint, hint!).
I've followed these folks on the internet from when they started out; they have done at least 500% more than I ever thought they could. If I'm ever back there it IS on my list of "Must Sees" right up there with the Smithsonian.

This is the one David mentioned. He was helpful in providing me ideas of what the rail-car wheels/trucks looked like while I was painting this.

The above picture taken north of Chama, NM

George,
As a boy, I remember watching and listening, from my grandparents place on W Park Rd in Elkhorn, to the trains pass by on the main UP line.

Rich,
Yes, that's the one, but I was also thinking you could do a neat painting or two from those photos!
Kirk, your T is on the wrong side of the road! :-)
The Cumbres and Toltec is one amazing train ride.

I remember a cover on the "Vintage Ford", many years ago that, from memory, during a re-enactment, showed 2 old loco's, nose to nose, where the Eastern and Western lines met (Was that around Salt lake City?) with Model Ts' all around.
I'd love to have a copy of that issue.
Cheers,
Rob

Talk about a "restoration project" there were no drawings of either locomotive extant, and the Park contract called for the locomotives to be correct within a 1/4". Chad O'Conner's company came up with a way to measure parts in the original photographs. It was quite a project to build these "from scratch." Ward Kimball did the replication of the original paintings on the corners of the tender. Originally designed to burn oil for ease of operation, the Jupiter has been modified back to burning wood, as the original did. Also, based on newer information, the blue color scheme was applied to be more correct (the problem with having only black and white photos to work from).
