Parking Train Mural 2018, Artist: OSLP, Administrator: Sterling Israel, Oregon Assisted Living Program, Lincoln Street & W. 4th Avenue, Eugene, Oregon
A whimsical train wrapped itself around the concrete of a bicycle parking and automobile parking area. When casually viewed from the street, only the head of the train was visible, but by walking around the concrete, the entire train quickly came into view.

The mural of the train was drawn on a low concrete fence that surrounded an enclosed area by a parking lot, and behind bicycle parking. That mural could be seen on Lincoln Street, just south of the railroad tracks.

The train engine looked like it had been carved from wood and painted bright colors. A cloud of exhaust came from the smokestack of the train and lay flat just below the edge of concrete.

A passenger car displayed three passengers behind windows. One face looked out at the passing you. Two others looked sideways and faced each other.

An empty passenger car with nobody at its windows. Its wheels were yellow and looked more like tires than like the steel wheels of a train.

Only half of a car was visible at the leftmost corner of the concrete wall. It had a target on its side and no windows.

Around the corner was the other half of that car. Sadly, the two halves did not match. Here, around the corner, the other half looked like a split level passenger car, with curtains partly closed on the top.

Trailing that car was a short car with an orange door and a creature gazing out the window.

The last car on the back of the concrete wall was another passenger car. This one had a striking geometric window and a variety of stripes up its lower half.

Another passenger car was midpoint on the third concrete wall. It too had passengers. They faced each other behind a yellow window. A tiny person stood in the open doorway. This car was partly shadowed by a parked car.

A narrow horse car followed the passenger car. A horse, behind a round window, gazed at the parked cars.

The final two cars of the painted train were partly blocked by a car's tail light. The large four-sectioned window revealed a person asleep behind it. An arched window at the forward end revealed a bed.

The last car had a single window facing the front. Its sides were painted in bright fabric swags, and its wheels had spokes.

A wider view showing the entire back of the train. Notice how the smoke from the engine is carried all the way around to the back of the train.
