Christmas Train In Wisconsin
Painting - Acrylic On Stretched Canvas
My painting is a tribute to locomotive #1003, Wisconsin�s 100 year old treasure. Built in 1913, this old train keeps on rolling down the tracks. Originally retired in 1954, it has been restored and put back in operation several times since the 70�s and finally its final journey was announced on November 13, 2010. But shortly afterwards, the Steam Locomotive Heritage Association raised funds to have the engine overhauled and certified for another 15 years of operation. Locomotive #1003 returned to service in September of 2012.
I have been fortunate enough to see this train on more than one occasion. It rolled right past my old house and home studio in Eagle, Wisconsin and I photographed it and then sometime later I was able to examine it up close at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum in Hartford. It�s a grand old steam engine with a grand history, and I�m hoping we will see it again soon on one of it�s �Whistle Stop with Santa� runs.
