Missouri Pacific's Colorado Eagle'


This was one of MoPac's 'Eagle' trains; this one ran from St Louis to Denver, Colorado, seen here near Colorado Springs.

'Kingston Flyer and friends'


...On the Fairlight Flats."  The risky manoeuvre depicted seems to show a 1927 Bentley and a Tiger Moth sharing the setting with the train.

The caption states it was commissioned during the restoration of 1982, presumably by NZR.  Artist details not stated, but the signature looks like Peter Beadle.  For more, see our books.

L.A. Metro to Crenshaw train art


"The Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line will extend from the existing Metro Exposition Line at Crenshaw and Exposition Boulevards. The Line will travel 8.5 miles to the Metro Green Line and will serve the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood and El Segundo; and portions of unincorporated Los Angeles County."

It is planned to be operational late next year and will be a welcome addition to the network for not only Angelinos but visitors!
