One piece shows the original La Plata Depot.
To show the wide range of different types of rail-related art in
the Gallery, I include this photo of Jackie Hadnot and his gigantic
wood carvings from the Opening. These two pieces plus others from
Jackie are still in the Gallery. If you are from California, you
may have seen a recent piece about Jackie on PBS TV by Huell Houser.
Conveniently located next door is Show-n-Off Photography and DJ Service owned by Bob and Amy Cox.
