Meet the Artist
Featuring Peter Lerro Jr

Stop by the train shop on Saturday October 26th from, 10am to 2pm and meet Artist Peter Lerro Jr.  He will be working on his latest creations,  and more!  Also available that day, the always popular Annual Railroading Calendar featuring his artwork will be available.  

Growing up in the Philadelphia suburbs, Pete fell in love with the many trains, trolley cars, subways and buses at a very early age. Spending hours drawing and coloring was a daily occurrence and eventually became the passion that he wanted to pursue as a professional.
Distribution of his work is worldwide. He has been commissioned by museums, historical societies and railroads for original art. His portfolio includes a vast collection of railroad watercolor paintings and reproductions available to everyone.
