Lincoln resident Diane Bogush currently has some of her “Riding the Rails” prints displayed at Whistle Stop Café in downtown Lincoln.
“When the California State Railroad Museum opened in 1981, a Railfair celebration was held for the public in Old Sacramento. Vintage trains were brought via tracks to town from states far and wide,” Bogush said. “I was intrigued by the view of two men riding the 1928 logging locomotive, Climax No. 10, which had served the forests of British Columbia. The original 20" x 15" acrylic painting was done from my photograph of these two men maneuvering the engine around a curve.”
“I thought, with all of the train repair happening and the new name for the coffee shop café, that these prints deserved to grace the fireplace for awhile before finding new homes,” Bogush said.
Whistle Stop Café is at the corner of Fifth Street and Lincoln Boulevard.
