Trains have been a big part of Tucson’s history since 1880. The tracks run through downtown and are part of everyday life for those who live and work there. The sound of train horns and traffic interruptions are distracting to some, but not for local artist Dirk Arnold. His studio is located right next to a railroad crossing—and he wouldn't have it any other way.
