Union Pacific 844 was built by Alco in 1944. It was one of ten locomotives in the FEF-3 class. UP 844 was originally assigned to passenger trains. It was later used for freight. Union Pacific has used the 844 for publicity purposes since the early 1960s.
Union Pacific is the largest railroad in the United States. It operates on 32,000 route miles in 23 states and has over 8000 locomotives.
Central Valley Steam captures UP 844 on accelerating out of Stockton during one of its rare appearances in California.
About our prints…
Our archival, art quality images like Central Valley Steam are reproduced on acid-free paper with ink that is rated to be fade resistant for up to 200 years.
Each Central Valley Steam 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 Central Valley Steam we usually use a double mat, often in shades of tan, 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.
