On June 28, Tom Fawell died. The creator of some of the most wonderful artwork that was used in EMD ads.
In the word of Rick Mako, "For a generation and then some, your work was the face of the Horsepower Race, and it left little to imagine that EMD was at the forefront. Yours was the style that could reach into hearts and make a bold statement; the older ones, weary from the loss of the beloved steam locomotive were suddenly revitalized at terms such as “Second Generation.” And the young were just WOWed."
Thanks Tom Fawell, you made me realize diesel locomotives are awesome. May you have a fast track and green light into heaven.
