Down By The Station By Les Kouba

By Les C. Kouba

Down by the Station by Les Kouba

“Down by the Station, early in the morning,” begins a popular tune of our time. But in other times, and other places, this lyric had real meaning. The shrill whistle of the morning milk train was the alarm clock that signaled the start of another workday in thousands of American towns, from Cape Cod to the California coast. Millions heard that whistle, and, yawning perhaps, responded to it. If you would like to see the results of this track borne timepiece, look around you.

A steam locomotive pulls into a busy freight depot as railroad workers ready crates on the platform and behind the station a horse drawn wagon waits to be loaded in this circa 1930s image by wildlife artist Les Kouba. This limited edition print was one of 12 paintings done for the Red Wing shoe Company. This print will make an excellent edition to the collection of any train enthusiast.
