Item Details
Peter Drake's mural at the Massapequa Station was inspired by his father, a model train enthusiast who built miniature villages and painted lead toy figures for his train sets. Using the toys as inspiration, Drake created paintings of them in various poses waiting for their trains.

The paintings were interpreted into a series of 17 laminated hand-painted glass windows by Peters Glass for the station's new waiting room and works such as this one above some of the stairways. The luminous colors are made through multiple layers of transparent pigment that give the artwork a glowing appearance.
