Leanin’ Tree published over 100 of Howard Fogg’s singular images of American railroad history. Of Fogg, Ed Trumble says, ”In some important respects, Howard resembled another great American artist, Charles M. Russell. For just as Russell was compelled to paint and record every detail of his disappearing West, so Howard dedicated his life to preserving the railroading saga of North America. I think that history will see Howard Fogg, like Russell, as a unique artist of his own era, who was destined to record for all time a special part of America.”
