Sierra Railroad No. 3 was built by the Rogers Locomotive and Machine Works of Paterson, New Jersey in 1891. The locomotive worked briefly for the Prescott & Arizona Central before coming to California. No. 3 played a key role in the building of the Sierra Railroad into Jamestown in 1897. Known as the “movie engine”, No. 3 has appeared in numerous motion pictures, television shows, and commercials. Today No. 3 is part of the collection at Railtown 1897 in Jamestown, California.
Sierra 3 Turntable captures the moment when the locomotive crew is blowing down the boiler, intentionally venting steam to remove impurities.
About our prints…
Our archival, art quality images like Sierra 3 Turntable are reproduced on acid-free paper with ink that is rated to be fade resistant for up to 200 years.
Each Sierra 3 Turntable 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 Sierra 3 Turntable 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.
