Thomas Hart Benton – the wreck of the ol’ 97, lithograph 1944

The “Ol’ 97,” a Southern Railway locomotive, officially known as the Fast Mail, was en route from Monroe, Virginia, to Spencer, North Carolina, when it derailed at Stillhouse Trestle near Danville, Virginia, in September of 1903.

I’ve posted before about the American artist, Benton.
