N&W Big Three Photograph
Y6a 2156, Class J 611, and Class A 1218
N&W’s legendary Big Three were reunited in the museum's rail yard in 2015. Local photographer, Phillip Barrett Jr captured these powerful Roanoke icons in his stunning photograph. Printed with a matte finish, the photograph measures 12 inches x 36 inches, is printed on heavy weight photographic paper. Comes rolled.
Great photograph on good quality paper. Fast International shipping at reasonable cost. It is going on my wall near my O. Winston Link posters.
The photo is great! However, the size (12" X 36") is unusual. I think 24" X 36" would have been better.
I recently purchased the Big 3 Print featuring the Y6a, Class J, and Class A after seeing an image of these locos on the lastest "Fire Up 611" brochure. The quality of this print exceeded my expectations. All I can say is "awesome!" The photographer captured these great locomotives with a stunning photo that is printed on heavyweight photographic paper. Not only is it rare to have these 3 back on Virginia rails, but this photo does a magnificent job with composition, lighting, and details. It makes me proud to be an N&W fan and a supporter of the 611 restoration.
The beautiful picture shows the truest formation of power and speed all displayed in a natural setting of light. The photographer created a picture that invites the viewer to enjoy the Big 3 each time your eyes invite the view into your mind. My father took me several times to ride 611 and 1218. Now in his later years he will enjoy a view into our past and know the people of the future have several things to look forward to. Perfect Christmas gift for a lover of Steam.
