Illustrated Happy Hour – The Sunshine Special and Midnight Train Cocktail

Tags: , , , ,

We are inspired by passenger trains for today’s special HISTORY focused Illustrated Happy Hour. Make yourself one of these Midnight Train cocktails and settle in for a discussion about the Sunshine Special passenger train from the T&P fleet – and then paint along with us at the end! #GraceTrainWeek


The painting featured in the video was created for the book cover for Texas and Pacific Railway: from Ox Teams to Eagles, A History by Don Watson & Steve Brown, The Boston Mills Press, 1978.

‘The Texas and Pacific – From Ox Teams to Eagles’ by Don Watson and Steve Brown tells the history of the T&P in 256 pages.

The restoration of T&P #610 to pull the American Freedom Train through Texas gets its own 30-page chapter (illustrated with over two dozen photos and a map of the route).
