Howard Fogg Trains 2025 Wall Calendar


Considered the all-time master of railroad art, Howard Fogg painted the power and majesty of the steel wheel on the steel rail. After rail fans discovered Fogg’s artistry, he spent the next 50 years as a freelance artist reinventing the steam age. In Howard Fogg Trains 2025, his paintings live on, commemorating the great age of railroading.

Railroads featured in this edition include:
Southern Pacific Cab Ahead

In 1909, the Baldwin Locomotive Works designed a locomotive with the entire boiler, cab and all, turned around. Over a period of 35 years, Southern Pacific put 293 oil-burning, cab-forwards into service. This painting pictures locomotive 4165, a Class AC-7 (4-8-8-2) leading a freight in the Siskiyou Mountains of southern OR, probably in about 1950.

Rotary OY Working at Los Pinos

Denver and Rio Grande Western Rotary Snowplow OY is plowing moderate snow just west of the water tank at Los Pinos, CO in January 1959. Rio Grande 487 and 483 are working the plow west. OY would have been called out at Alamosa the day before and prepared for the trip.

Lizard Head Pass

Rio Grande Southern 461, a Class K-27 Mikado (2-8-2) has arrived at the summit of Lizard Head Pass, CO with a southbound freight. Another K-27,
Denver and Rio Grande Western 463, was a rear end helper. It was cut in ahead of the caboose, and is now running around the train and will proceed on to Rico, CO light.

ALCO 2000

Likely an Alco FA set, probably in the 1940s. The only location even similar is Crozier Canyon near Valentine, AZ.

The Suntan Special

With Monterrey Bay in the background, Southern Pacific 3224, a Mikado type MK-4 (2-8-2) built by Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1913 and 2371, a Class T-40 Ten Wheeler, assembled in 1928 and the largest one ever built, are leading a long southbound passenger train on its way to Santa Cruz, CA and a day at the beach. Originating at San Jose, CA, and later at Oakland, this train sometimes ran in three or four sections to accommodate all the passengers it attracted.

Northern Steam

A Santa Fe 2900 Class Northern (4-8-4). There were thirty of these engines, numbered from 2900 through 2929, all “war babies” built in 1943 and 1944 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works.

A Wheat Country Memory

Rock Island 5104, a Class R-67 Northern (4-8-4) one of ten engines built by the American Locomotive Company in 1944, is leading a westbound freight across a virtual sea of wheat heading out of a storm in western Kansas during the late summer of 1945.

Rio Grande K-36’s

Denver and Rio Grande Western 481 and 483 are on a narrow-gauge freight in an imagined scene, showing a backdrop more like Marshall Pass, CO than anywhere else. Both locomotives are Class K-36 Mikados (2-8-2’s) built and delivered by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1925, a class of ten of them.

Milwaukee Road Branch Line Power

The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad had its share of branch lines, so in 1946, they went to American Locomotive Works for a road switcher that could operate over track and bridges that could not support a heavy locomotive. Alco offered the RSC-2. The locomotive used an A1A-A1A wheel arrangement with two six-wheel trucks that spread the load more evenly over the track. Milwaukee purchased 22 of the 91 copies of this locomotive produced. This image shows 976 rumbling over a small girder bridge.

The Broadway Limited

In a scene reminiscent of the late 1940s, Train #29, the westbound Broadway Limited with double-headed K-4s Pacifics (4-6-2) led by 5471, is running along at 60-miles-per-hour. At this time, the Broadway was the hottest train on the Pennsylvania Railroad. 8797, a Class H-9s Consolidation, working a local freight, has cleared the main line and waits in a siding as the passenger train roars past.

Lima Superpower at its Best

The fall colors are at their best in Ohio, as two trains with Lima Locomotive Works power meet at Fostoria in 1944. There is a war going on, and both trains are moving coal. Chesapeake and Ohio Class H-8 Allegheny (2-6-6-6) 1659, one of a class of 60 locomotives built by the Lima Locomotive Works during and right after World War Two, is seen here with a loaded westbound coal train meeting 3059, one of 40 Class T-1 Texas Type (2- 10-4) engines built for the C & O in 1930, leading an eastbound empty coal hopper train in the fall of 1949.

Christmas on the Monon

Howard Fogg completed a series of watercolor paintings for John Barriger, who was president of the Chicago, Indianapolis and Louisville Railroad,
also known as the Monon, from 1946 until 1952. Engine 27, one of eight 1,500 horsepower Alco RS-2’s, is holding a siding while the Hoosier Limited runs past. Mr. Barriger left the Monon: he went on to the New Haven Railroad as its president.

Gulf Mobile & Ohio 2025 Wall Calendar


In 1940 a tangle of southern lines incorporated to form the Gulf Mobile & Ohio Railroad. Success followed and the new road saw three decades of growth. First among large railroads to adopt diesel power, the GM&O merged with Illinois Central in 1972. The south to north connection culminated in Canadian National’s purchase of IC in 1998. The Gulf Mobile & Ohio 2025 calendar looks at the line’s trains and engines in the years preceding the IC merger. All aboard the Rebel Route, eh!

Great Trains 2025 Wall Calendar


In Great Trains Gil Bennett’s paintings capture the power and romance of riding the high iron. Modern steam is represented by a Pennsylvania 4-8-2, Rio Grande’s 4-8-4 and huge 2-8-8-2, plus Union Pacific’s 4-6-6-4. Famous passenger trains are pictured, too: Shasta Daylight, The Mail and Express, Puritan, and Portland Rose. These dramatic paintings are accompanied by historical captions describing each image..

Locomotives and trains featured in this edition include:
≈  Steam in the Valley, Sumpter Valley Railroad, 1943

When the Uintah Railway abandoned its lines in Utah and Colorado, it put its locomotives and rolling stock up for sale. The Sumpter Valley bought their two articulated 2-6-6-2s, numbers 50 and 51. Converted to burn oil, a tender was added and the boiler saddle tanks removed. The locomotives served well hauling tonnage until the road closed in 1947.

Dusk. Union Pacific Railroad, 1974

This was the last helper grade on the Union Pacific as the rails climbed to a point between the Salt Lake and Utah valleys at 4,812 ft. Four SD 45s pull hard on the 9,000-ton train, as three GP 9’s shove hard on the rear, to keep the train at a steady 15 mph.

Kenosha Sunrise, Colorado & Southern Railway, 1935

Two diminutive locomotives, number 8 a 2-6-0 and number 69, a 2-8-0, take a short train up the 4% grade to the 9,576-foot summit of Kenosha Pass. The morning light rests on the 14,264 ft. Mt. Evans and will soon light the valleys and parks on this cold March day. The Colorado & Southern ran from Laurel, Montana to Dallas, Texas and had a narrow-gauge empire that ran from Denver to Baldwin, Colorado.

Morning train to Atchee, Uintah Railway, 1936

The Uintah Railway ran in the high valleys and washes of the Colorado Plateau of western Colorado and Eastern Utah, climbing grades up to 7.5% with tight curves. To battle those grades, the railway ordered two 2-6-6-2T locomotives from Baldwin. Baldwin built number 50 with the idea the steepest grade was only 5%, so the engine shops at Atchee added another steam dome so steam could be gathered from the boiler on the 7.5% grades. When Baldwin built number 51, it came with two steam domes. Here we see number 51 climbing up West Salt Wash Canyon. It has just crossed trestle 22-B heading to Atchee, with three water cars, seven box cars, three stock cars and a combine for passengers.

The Stanford in the Shadow of Mt. Shasta, Southern Pacific Railroad, 1955

In 1955, the SP took observation car 140, named the Sunset, and converted it to a business car, naming it the Stanford, after Leland. The car served the presidents of the Southern Pacific and later Union Pacific until 2022. The car has been refurbished and is in the collection of Railroading Heritage of Midwest America. Here we see Stanford on the rear of the Shasta Daylight as it heads north to Portland. A big AC-5 is running its last miles as it slowly moves up the siding while the passenger train passes. Today, this painting hangs in the car.

A Rose on the River, Union Pacific Railroad, 1946

A late running Portland Rose heads down the Columbia River Gorge on a summer morning. Due in Portland, Oregon at 7:00 a.m., the big 4-6-6-4 hustles down the track at 75 m.p.h. trying to make up for the lost time. The gorge is busy this morning as a barge motors upriver and a Spokane, Portland & Seattle Z-8 4-6-6-4 heads to Wishram, Washington on the other bank.

The Sun is out in Skagway, White Pass & Yukon Route Railway, 2023

White Pass & Yukon 3007 heads up the grades of White Pass. The train started at sea level at Skagway, Alaska and will climb to the 4,501-foot elevation at the top of the pass. The train is twothirds of the way to the top. The majestic Seven Brothers Peaks stand as sentinels in the Saw Tooth Range as a summer storm approaches. The locomotive is an E3000CC-DC narrow gauge diesel electric, sporting 3,300 horsepower, in the Black Mamba paint scheme.

Pennsy’s Perfection, Pennsylvania Railroad, 1956

Just north of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, M1 6783, digs into the rails to get her train moving on its way to Erie, PA. The big engine has been pulled from the deadline in Enola and patched up just enough to help move tonnage along the Pennsylvania’s Buffalo line. The locomotive may be old, but it was Pennsy’s finest; just a good locomotive that could pull hard, ride well and run fast.

Autumn Thunder, Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad, 1946

In 1927, the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad took delivery of the L-131 and L-132 class Mallet-type 2-8-8-2 locomotives that held the moniker “world’s largest” for several years. ALCO built the huge locomotives to combat the stiff grades along the D&RGW system. The most challenging pair were Soldier Summit, UT, with a 2.4% grade, and Tennessee Pass, CO, with a 3.3% grade. This is L-132 3612 as it grinds up Tennessee Pass at a steady 12 m.p.h., while back in the train, another 2-8-8-2 and a 4-8-2 shove hard to lift the train up to the 10,221-foot summit.

The War Horse, Denver & Rio Grande Western, 1943

On a cool late afternoon, a MAIN train heads up the Soldier Summit grade. In charge is 1706, one of Rio Grande’s M-64 4-8-4s. It’s war time and motive power is tight and traffic heavy. The Rio Grande didn’t have any scheduled passenger trains through this area until later in the evening, however MAIN, or troop trains, could show up on the line at any time as they hustled the American boys off to war.

Hot Mail, Pennsylvania Railroad, 1956

Late November snow has coated Pennsylvania and the east. Train 85, The Mail and Express, is running on schedule as it skirts the Juniata
River. Up front, 8607, a new RSD7 heads two Pennsylvania passenger units and a long train of mail and express cars.

Rush of the Puritan, New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad, 1944

It’s a snowy winter afternoon as New Haven locomotives 0716 and 0719 speed north to Boston with the Puritan. During the first year of World War II, the New Haven Railroad received twenty DL-109 diesel electric locomotives from ALCO. The 2,000h.p. units (A1A-A1A) were built for service on passenger as well as freight trains and arrived at the perfect time to help the power-short railroad.

Colorado Narrow Gauge 2025 Wall Calendar


A rail-fan favorite, Colorado Narrow Gauge pictures the trains of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Established in 1870, the Rio Grande eventually operated 2,783 miles of track connecting Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah. Serving mountain communities, farms, and mines from the 1800s into the mid-1900s, the Rio Grande ran trains through mountain gorges, and across the highest rail mainline in America to deliver on the D&RG’s early motto, “Through the Rockies, not around them.”

This 2025 monthly wall calendar features: Large blocks for notes | Superb printing quality | Heavy 100-pound paper | Deluxe 11- by 14-inch size

Narrow gauge trains featured in this edition include:

• Engine 495, a Class K-37 (2-8-2) brought a standard gauge train to Antonito, CO using a standard gauge idler car on both ends of the southbound freight, an all-standard-gauge consist, but with a narrow-gauge caboose in May 1957.

• D&RGW 478 and 498 (a Class K-28 and a Class K-37) are leading a westbound freight at Arboles, CO, passing a unique water tank on June 14, 1968.

• Locomotive 489, a Class K-36 (2-8-2) and 268, a Class C-16 Consolidation (2-8-0) are at Gunnison, Colorado in June 1955.

• D&RGW 492 and 483 are being prepared for a “hill turn” to Cumbres and back in April 1949, a nearly every day occurrence.

• Many have seen Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge 493 in the last three years. Here is an image of 493 on a northbound D&RGW freight coming through Aztec, NM on May 31, 1958. The San Juan Basin oil boom was well underway at this time.

• Resplendent in its “bumblebee” paint scheme engine 4973, is loading sheep at Silverton, CO on June 24, 1950. The stock pens at Silverton were on the wye.

• D&RGW 483 and 493 (a Class K-36 and K-37) are on a double-headed westbound freight crossing the Conejos River one mile north of Antonito, CO on July 23, 1968.

• D&RGW 488 is pumping up the air and 484 has been placed mid-train on this warm August 1962 day at Antonito, CO. A substantial batch of empty Gramps Tank Cars are being returned to Chama, where they will be reloaded for another trip to the Gramps Refinery, located just east of the Alamosa roundhouse.

• Locomotives 492 and 495 are bringing a westbound freight down the two percent grade three miles west of Falfa, CO on September 14, 1956. In 1956, there was no problem with double-heading downgrade here. That all changed in September 1958, when slack action between engines 483 and 494 caused a derailment.

• D&RGW 492 is on an eastbound livestock train at Los Pinos, CO in October 1964. There is a 180-degree reverse curve here.

• Engine 483 is leading an eastbound “Kolor Karavan” passenger special through Monero Canyon, NM on September 3, 1962.

• Rio Grande 494, a Class K-37 Mikado (2-8-2) is leading an eastbound livestock train down Cumbres Pass about two miles west of Los Pinos, CO on October 6, 1961.

Southern Pacific Railroad 2024 Wall Calendar


Southern Pacific Railroad began with a simple idea: to connect San Francisco and San Diego, California, by rail. A century later, Southern Pacific had become one of the largest railroads in America, with lines that stretched from coast to coast (connecting to New York via Morgan Line steamships) and from the south to the northwest. In 1959, SP moved more ton-miles of freight than any other U.S. railroad. Engines featured here reach back to the era of SP steam, and forward to the diesels of the 1970s.
