In collaboration with artist Fred Besch, architect Peter Gerdin , Justin Self of Fusion Metal, the Town of Truckee and Kelly Brothers Painting, Inc. our community has been gifted with an amazing and fun work of art called, Locomotion No. 4294. This sculpture was named after the cab forward engine in service in the 1940’s and 50’s that pulled arduous loads over the Sierra and Donner Pass Summit. Bike on over to this little fresh air spot at the foot of Spring Street a great place for a group photo, to enjoy your lunch, bring the kids and play human checkers on the board designed in the pavers or admire the art. Once again, our community on the go to make life in Truckee a special place to live.
