Freedom Train art by Howard Fogg

Renowned railroad artist Howard Fogg made two paintings of the Freedom Train for the American Locomotive Company (Alco), builders of the locomotive that pulled the train.

The more well-known painting, featuring the train by the Washington Monument, was used on posters and postcards that were sold at Freedom Train display sites.

The lesser-known of the two (bottom) -- a meeting of old and new locomotives -- was apparently not reproduced.

This "second" Freedom Train painting disappeared for decades, but has recently come to light!

Read the whole story of its rediscovery here.

B&W image: From a 1948 C&NW employee magazine in the collection of George Barker. Over the years, Charles E. Dare and John J. Scala also sent B&W copies of the painting to George in their efforts to track down the painting.
