I’ve posted three sketches in a row (drawing was my first love) and this one is like a mirror image to the previous one. So, those that know me know that I’m not a Hawkeye fan (huge understatement, I know). I’ve been one of the biggest Cyclone fans since I was little. That being said I remember when the Hawkeye Nation lost Chris 20 years ago in a car accident and my heart hurt like the rest of the state when it loses one of its sons. So take note Hawk fans, here’s one of the few times you’ll see me create something Hawk friendly. It’s a tip of the hat to a great coach and a tribute to a great Iowa athlete taken too soon.
And Hawk fans...it’s not for sale. I’m not licensed to sell U of I merch. So, you can look but you can’t touch :)
We at the NNRY would also like to applaud a fellow railroad museum all the way in Roanoke VA, on their latest announcement involving a special locomotive.
We know here at the NNRY that it is not only rewarding when we fire up our old 93 and 40 as well as all our other pieces of equipment, but it is just as equally rewarding to see a piece of our history return to life again and that is exactly what is happening at the Virginia Museum of Transportation with the newly released website that is spreading the word and receiving donations to do tests on the only surviving N&W J class streamliner locomotive #611 to fire it back up to operations once more.
Congratulations, our whistles and bells ring for you, be sure to check out their website and to wish them congrats and blessings on this event http://fireup611.org/main/index.php
Be sure to stay tuned on our site too for more updates, and announcements! :)
