Occre Pacific 231 Locomotive – Model Train Kit

The Pacific 231 was built by the Société Alsacienne de Constructions Mécaniques, in Mulhouse, France.

The success of these fast and powerful locomotives meant that they were ideal for pulling large, fast express passenger trains, both in Spain and France. In fact, Pacific 231 trains continued in active service in France right up until the sixties.

This locomotive, which was also known as La Princesa, represents one of the most glorious pages in the history of French railway transport. Pacific type locomotives, during their many years of service, pulled some of France’s most emblematic trains, such as the famous Fléche d’Or.

You will find out, step by step, how to put together a model featuring all the details of the original carriage. We invite you to let yourself get carried away and set up spaces for creative leisure in which you can enjoy this marvellous railway model.

Norman Rockwell – 332 Magazine Covers

There are few more satisfying sights on a city street than a well-stocked newsstand, hung with a hundred or more magazines and periodicals, each competing for the attention of the potential customer. The American magazine cover enjoyed a Golden Age during the period that opened with the high-speed color press, and ended when subscription sales grew to paramount importance. Dozens of gifted artists made their reputations in this field. None of them, however, achieved the immense and sustained popular success enjoyed by Norman Rockwell.

Although technically he was an academic painter, he had the eye of a photographer and, as he became a mature artist, he used this eye to give us a picture of America that was familiar—astonishingly so—and at the same time unique. The picture seemed familiar because it was everyone’s dream of America; it was unique because only Rockwell managed to bring it to life with such authority. Rockwell held up a friendly mirror to the society he lived in, and Americans have looked into this glass and seen themselves as warm, decent, hard-working citizens of a country bountiful enough to accommodate their boundless optimism.

Rockwell best expressed this vision of America in his justly famous cover illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post, painted between 1916 and 1963. All of his Post covers are reproduced in splendid full color in this oversized volume, with commentaries by Christopher Finch, the noted writer on art and popular culture.

In this latest printing of332 Magazine Covers, the thumbnail images accompanying Finch’s descriptive captions are printed in full color for the convenience of the reader, and the typography has been refreshed.
