The development of the Tier 4 locomotive is a crowning achievement in locomotive progress.
CSX serves the ports, agriculture, industries and communities of the Eastern and Midwestern United States.

The GG1 was one of the most successful and popular locomotives ever designed. The venerable GG1 continued in passenger service well after the inception of Amtrak. Still very popular, GG1s have found homes at museums and parks all across America.

I just got the great new Amtrak America that I ordered from the Amtrak Store. It is truly one of my favorite train shirts I have.
This shirt makes me think of the great scenery and communities that I see while traveling Amtrak. I can't wait to wear this shirt as I ride Amtrak across America.

I enjoy visiting railroads and communities all across America. I find that travel always inspires new drawings.

The Midwest has a rich history of railroads that connected its people, places, agriculture and industry. Historically, many of the Midwest's railroads connected the Midwest with the Gulf Coast, the Northeast, and the West.
Many of the Midwest's railroads have become part of today's Union Pacific, BNSF, Norfolk Southern, CSX, Canadian Pacific or Canadian National. Quite a few of the Midwest's shortlines and regional railroads remain. Shortlines and regionals perform much of the key first mile/last mile service in unison with today's Class 1 railroads.
Westbounds were just preparing to climb the Horseshoe Curve, and eastbounds prepared to cut their helpers off. After a few hours, I was ready to go back into the studio and draw again.
