At the shops by KendallCollins At the shops by KendallCollins
"In the Bakersfield shops, young willam95broch is listening to steamfox, the shop foreman, about having the No. 1238 [link] ready for the service she will have to take in her new life. Also in the shops, No. 4960 is coming in for check on her running gear, No. 4460 is getting ready for service on the Panther, and other engines are about to enter the shops for cleaning and repairs. It's a never ending task to operate and repair steam engines."

A gift for steamfox and willam95broch.

If you like this, please a comment and fave it.

One of my favourite images you've done so far I reckon.

If it's alright, I'd like to ask about the Antler Creek and San Joaquin Valley Rail Line.

The SJVR is a real railroad right? And you're producing are based on it's history with furry characters?

What about Antler Creek? I couldn't find anything about Antler Creek on the web apart from your art, a lodge and a golf course. Is the Antler Creek Railroad a real one or a fictional one of your creation?

Another thing relating to both is, I get a feeling I'm missing something. Are there story lines of some sort somewhere? Are they roleplay based storylines? Is there some sort of community based around this or have you come up with it all yourself?

It's been on my mind for a while now and I was hoping I might pick something up with time but I haven't. The sheer number of fursonas that appear in your art made me think there must be something going on but I couldn't find anything.

Well, I'll answer as best I can:

The Antler Creek is mostly fiction. It's basicly like the Roaring Camp and Big Trees railroad, but has longer miles, smoother grades to permit rod locomotives, and locations based on mountains railroads in California (notably the Yosemite Valley Railroad.)

The San Joaquin Valley Railline is half fiction/half real. The railroad was based on the company that did ran in my area until a few years (the tracks are now gone). My version is based on the Union Pacific and Iowa Pacific Holdings Company in size and number of trains. I used history of the more Class One railroads that operated in California, so most of THIS railroads history is fiction. The shop scene is based on pics of the Southern Pacific shops in Los Angeles shops and others out there.

I did these as gifts for being kind and support of in my work. A lot of them are railfurs, but others are more non-train nuts. So, this is just basicly me saying thank you one piece at a time, and doing in the style reflecting the past that we sometimes forget.

Wow! That's amazing! You have a fantastic imagination. I wish I could come up with such well developed ideas.

Thank-you for answering my questions, and so quickly too. I'll have to look through your older stuff and work through your gallery in order to get a better idea of things.

It's a shame the early 20th century gets overlooked so much isn't it. Most people aren't remotely interested in anything older than the 50s.

Well, that is a shame. To give a lesson for you about this imagination, here's one I can think of:

Take something you remember, like your homeland, your family or friends, your thing of interest(in this case trains), and mix it with a history with so much detail that it feels real.

Here's George Lucas' example: [link]

He used his homeland (Modesto, CA), the people (which he based mostly on himself), and gave a good amount of detail that makes both entertaining and interesting in showing the world at that time.

I suppose quitting gets you nowhere.

I've never seen American Graffiti. I'll have to watch it. Thanks.
