Tom Clark Gnome - Super Chief

Like many of the trains you see today, my Cairn Railroad series is adding a locomotive. There are two Woodspirits riding on the Super Chief. The engineer, or fireman, is holding matches and a bell. The fellow behind him is reading the timetable, and the watch on his overalls is at 4:45. According to the song, the Chattanooga Choo Choo left Pennsylvania Station at a quarter to four; read a magazine and then you're in Bal- timore. But the Super Chief is traveling coast- to-coast, as shown by the transit tokens on the front and back of the statue. The coin at the rear of the engine shows its point of departure, New York. I hope that Hobo, P.S. and the other train men are ready for a long journey, for the token on the front shows the Super Chief's desti- nation: Los Angeles.
