Is that the black or blue dial? In one pic there is a blue tone, but that could be the AR coating. I can't find a blue dial reference with a silver seconds hand, only a red hand.
Love the wrist shot with the locomotive! Cannonball is also an unexpected favorite of mine--typically I don't need therefore like chronographs, but when I had an opportunity (that was too good to be true, but was true) to get a Cannonball, I got one, and really loved the details on the dial, the sub-dials and the overall look--enjoy your watch!
If you like visiting neat railroad museums, if you ever get to Ogden, Utah they have Union Pacificís ďUnion StationĒ museum of the 1st continental railroad. Itís just North of where they drove the golden spike.
I was lucky enough to inherit an original station masterís desktop after my father passed. It came from his great grandfather who bought the desk as they were remodeling and expanding the station on a spur South to Salt Lake City. The great great grandfather had the desk hauled about 140 miles South into the Rockies.
The desk was beautiful golden oak with loads of patina on the brass, anda few circular stain from where a kerosene lamp was placed all to often.
As such a historical piece I contacted the Union Pacific, who were thrilled, even though they crated this big desk up and shipped it West from my home in Upstate NY.
I love old museum.s like this and figured this desk was from a great moment in time.
Your watch goes very nicely in that collective background.

Thank you for taking the time to offer this glowing recommendation. Iíve noted it and the next time I make a trip to Utah, the railroad museum in Ogden will be a definite place to visit.
Thank you, Champagne in Hand.
