"Rusty Locomotive" oil 11 x 14

I am fascinated by old machines and wrecks, neglected and marooned. This sugarland train rusts away in   Port Elizabeth - South Africa. That's the remains of a tender in front of the loco. What do you think of this alternative title "Sugarland Expess" - nice and ironic? COMMENTS are encouraged.

I love it! I like the subtle hint of the setting - the green dune and the glimpse of the sea. So East Coast! Sugarland Express is appropriate. I romantically like to think I love trains because it is in my blood as my maternal grandfather came out from England to work on the Railways in South Africa.
