PETROLEUM DIRECTORY: Alaska Railroad annual print released in December

The Alaska Railroad Corporation released its annual print in December 2006. “Reflective” by North Pole artist and railfan Art Chase continues the tradition of artwork featuring the Alaska Railroad.

Chase’s design for the 2007 Alaska Railroad print includes a graphic salute to the steam engines of past and present. The print features locomotive #751 signifying the past, a new AC power locomotive signifying movement toward the future, and the solid constant that signifies Alaska — Mount McKinley.

“I was trying to come up with a steam-oriented idea, but I also know that the railroad has always been forward thinking,” said Art Chase. “I am really excited about this painting. I have wanted to create an Alaska Railroad annual print for a number of years.”

Preferring the mediums of oil painting, pencil drawing and airbrushing, Chase’s self-taught style is described as “tight and detailed”.

An Alaska resident since 1980, Chase is a 23-year veteran of the Air Force and Air National Guard and now works for the Federal Aviation Administration overseeing and trouble shooting the navigational system programs across the state.

Prints cost $50, posters cost $25, and pins cost $5.

The 2007 poster, print and pin are available through ARRC’s online gift shop, at the Alaska Railroad Depot Ticket Windows or by calling 1(800) 544-0552 or 265-2494 in Anchorage.
