Las Vegas Dream Train 16"x20" oil on canvas original and prints available

This is an original oil painting of the Union Pacific D-9 951 diesel engine at the Las Vegas depot circa 1955. The Las Vegas Union Pacific Station was the best example of Streamline Moderne in Las Vegas. It was built in 1940 and replaced a 30-year-old Spanish-style station. It was demolished in the mid-1960s to build the Union Plaza Hotel. Amtrak continued train service to the back of the hotel until 1993.

The Bloody Nose 16"x20" oil on canvas prints available

I love the Santa Fe Chief. Her engineers called her "The Bloody Nose". This was about 1966 at the old San Juan Capistrano, CA station. All of the stucco was sand blasted off and it is brick today. Every rail fan needs a print of this one.
