Congratulations!

Love! Congratulations on your sale!

As the son of a man who retired from the Pennsylvania Railroad with 38 years' service and as someone who grew up in Altoona, not only can I appreciate your stunning artistry in painting after painting, I have no doubt that at some time during my many visits to the Horseshoe Curve "back in the day" I stood at this very spot and watched Big Steam thundering past and headed west. Gorgeous portraiture that helps preserve a very special era of American history.

Congratulation on your sale. I love Altoonan, Road a steam engine around the curve. I am originally from Reading, Pa. Walk accross the swing bridge many of time. i like those trains. Donna Brown

As a native Altoonan I spent a lot of time at the Horseshoe Curve and saw many a westbound steam locomotive pulling a string of freight cars up the mountain with brute power. This might be the best presentation I've ever seen of such a moment...the engine leaning slightly to convey exertion, the giant smoke storm roaring up and back, and the gritty, dark colors of the locomotive. My Dad worked on such magnificent machines in the Altoona Shops for 38 years, and I'd like to imagine this was one that he touched. A masterful painting, David!

I LOVE trains and this is a magnifcent rendering !

Very powerful and solid rendering. Well done on your sale!

Magnificent!!! Congrats on your sale.

Wow -- the detail on this baby. Wonderful action-packed scene. Well done! Congrats!

Beautiful paintings. i don't like railways. I find too much of engineering in them.I can't relate with the engines. Your paintings made me rethink my likining. Thanks.
