Done in the style of the old locomotive builders' advertising lithographs of the mid-1800s, these completely new renderings are based on the best current research into how these historic engines actually looked.

The General, Texas, and Yonah were famous for taking part in the Civil War's Great Locomotive Chase. The Gen'l Haupt, Union, and Lt. Gen'l Grant hauled supplies to the Union Army on the Virginia and Tennessee battlefields. The Jupiter and the 119 were the locomotives that met head-to-head at the Golden Spike ceremony when the first transcontinental railroad was completed. The Highland Light, with its fine proportions, and the Tiger, with a bright pink tender, were extravagant showpieces of Victorian art.

Each engine is printed in exactly O (1/4") scale along with a scale rule. They are professionally printed with a photo-quality laser printer on 13" x 19" 80# white cover stock with plenty of margin for matting and framing. (Image size is about 10" x 16.")

The price is $35 for a single print, or $30 each if you order more than one. The shipping cost is included for up to seven prints within the United States. Extra shipping will be charged for more than seven prints or for mailing ouside the U.S.
