Restored #611 Steam Locomotive--SOLD

Shawsville, Va

At one time this steam locomotive (#611) was the flagship of Norfolk and Western RR which is now known as Norfolk & Southern. This is an image of this locomotive on an excursion following it's complete restoration. I painted this image from a photograph I shot as the this steam excursion came out of the tunnel at a place called Den Hill in Montgomery County, Virginia. The steam and smoke obscuring most to the cars in this excursion seemed to be an analogy for this engine returning from the mists of history. This engine's current home is at the Transportation Museum in Roanoke, Virginia. SOLD

Excellent steam locomotive oil on canvas perspective captured nicely both in locomotive and tracks. the exhaust steam is impressive gives the impression that the she is ready to make the journey.
Nice brush stokes and nice light created.

very nice work indeed. The frontal and diagonal capture gives a lovely perspective made better with all that steam.V
