A 1966 trip to San Francisco took Stan and his wife, Carlene through southern Colorado where he photographed the abandoned depot and water tank at Sargents, on the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad. Some ten years later that photo served as the inspiration for a series of paintings he titled “Gone are the Trains”.

Depicted on an angle, the converging lines draw the eye into the vast, open landscape and mountains beyond, accentuating the building’s isolation. The yellow and brown color scheme recalls Masters’ boyhood home at the railroad shanty that belonged to the Missouri Pacific Railroad and whose buildings were painted in those colors. Daylight flashes off the glass of the broken window, the effect achieved by the unpainted white paper. The rusted oil drum sports three small bullet holes, evidence of impish boys at play.
