Etching and aquatint, 1947, Buckner 101, edition 75 plus nine trial proofs. 12 7/8 x 16 3/4 in. Initialed and dated in the plate, lower left. Signed, numbered and titled in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression printed in rich black ink. The margins are full and the condition is very good apart from slight light discoloration within an earlier mat opening. This masterpiece of etching took the artist about six months to complete and he spent a week making sketches at the locomotive shop which inspired the print. The time he spent making the plate is dated in the upper left corner of the image. This uncommon print is illustrated on the cover of the catalogue raisonné.
