An impressive lineup of steam power is gathered in the engine terminal. A massive Western Maryland 4-6-6-4 articulated heads out for its next assignment while one of its stable mates takes on water. To the right a Reading 4-8-4 Northern and a Baltimore and Ohio 4-6-2 Pacific both receive oil and grease. Barely visible on the far right is a sign of things to come. Scenes like this will soon be nothing more than memories.

"The Twilight of Steam" was commissioned by the late Don Ball, Jr., a noted railroad author and photographer. It won the John L. Cooley Memorial award in 1986.
