Artist's Description


No other product of man’s mind has ever exercised such a compelling hold upon the public’s imagination as the steam locomotive. No other machine in its day has been a more faithful friend to mankind nor has contributed more to the growth of industry throughout the whole world.

The sight of one such machine with steam clouding all around it, and the mighty shape of its silhouette evokes an image, that of a Giant: A giant moster with a fire in its belly, a monster that is alive and volatile in so many ways and yet, under the right skillful hands, so tame and graceful.
