Max Jacquiard - Columbia River Bridge, No. 3, Revelstoke

This seemed an appropriate title as it was the third bridge built at this location
and also the third painting I have done of this span. It was completed in 1907
and replaced in 1968 by the present day bridge which lies slightly upstream
from this.
A bird's eye view was chosen to feature the surface of the river.
An unusual feature of this bridge was the "gauntlet track". Double tracked
sections at either end were partially merged or overlapped on the bridge
deck, which was too narrow to accomodate both tracks side by side.
While the bridge is no more, both locomotives have survived. Engine 5468
is a P2H "Mikado", built in 1948, now housed in Revelstoke's new Railway
Museum building. No. 2860, ex-CPR " Royal Hudson", built 1940,
still regularly hauls a tourist train from North Vancouver to
Squamish four months each year.

Max Jacquiard has a sizeable research library of printed materials, photos and slides
of steam trains and the places they would have operated. It is that attention
to precise and accurate details that can be seen in his paintings. The sensitivity
to his subject and quiet passion that is infused into each work seem to allow
Max Jaquiard to breath life into the canvases. The images he creates have
captured the imaginations of steam buffs across Canada and the United
States. His paintings grace the walls in homes across North America.
