    Last weekend, one of my good friends was thinking about me. It seems that a friend of her late father was an artist. The man has since died as well, but did some incredible pen and ink drawings. Two of them caught my friends eye; they were scale drawings of two steam locomotives. The man's wife gave them to her, and she gave them to me. They are going to look great in my train room. You really have to see them close up to appreciate the detail. I was shocked and stunned right down to my toes.

    The first one is a Grand Trunk Western Northern Type U-3b.

    The second one is a Pennsylvania Railroad K-4 Pacific 4-6-2.

    It is so nice to have friends who know about my hobby and think of me whenever they see something unique.
