Eureka Crossing Twin Bridges
Eureka & Palisade 4-4-0 No. 4, “Eureka”, leads a short train across the Animas River at Twin Bridges, Colorado on August 20, 2011. Mike Armstrong photo.
Eureka & Palisade No. 4 is a 3′ gauge 4-4-0 “American” locomotive built by Baldwin in 1875. The Eureka & Palisade was a shortline railroad that operated in northern Nevada between 1873 and 1938. Warner Brothers acquired the locomotive in 1939 and it subsequently appeared in several motion pictures. The locomotive is now privately owned. It has run occasionally on the Durango & Silverton, making scenes like this one possible.
Eureka Crossing Twin Bridges is a beautiful, timeless photo that captures the spirit of railroading in the 19th century.
About our prints…
Our archival, art quality images like Eureka Crossing Twin Bridges are reproduced on acid-free paper with ink that is rated to be fade resistant for up to 200 years.
Each Eureka Crossing Twin Bridges print comes mounted in a 16″ x 20″ archival mat with backing board. All TSG prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.
We cut our own mats. The mat colors may vary depending on what we have in stock but we always pick something that compliments the artwork. If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send us a note and we will try to accommodate you. For Eureka Crossing Twin Bridges we usually use a double mat, often in shades of green, brown and/or gray. Sometimes we use the same color for both the inner and outer mats. This creates a different but equally appealing look. The print itself is about 11″ x 14″, which leaves an approximate 2.5″ border on the sides and 3″ on the top and bottom.
Prints are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches. We recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
