Kensington

New design added to my growing local series of T-shirts & mugs

Kensington Maryland B&O Train Station. Designed by E. Francis Baldwin in 1891. This beautiful station is photographed and painted frequently by artists, including myself. Baldwin’s train stations are so elegant. The design is inspired by the classic diesel locomotive paint scheme and is part of my growing local hometown series. Showcase your appreciation of historic trains and train stations with a T-shirt or mug. Makes a great gift for the railroad enthusiast.
