About Us


Chuck Heidorn married into trains.  By that we mean that he grew up fascinated with airplanes and cars, mostly.  It wasn't until he drew a picture of a train for Christmas to give to his brother-in-law, Jeff, that the idea of making prints came alive.  Jeff, the lifelong railfan, used to drag his sister to the tracks when they were kids. Jeff encouraged more drawings and said "I think we could sell these!!"  Hivan Productions became the railroad art print business of the two men--Chuck, the artist and Jeff, the railfan accountant.  The name Hivan is a made-up word using letters from their two last names.

A few years ago, through a small business grant, Chuck was able to make a website of his railroad art, called Hivanproductions.com.   Not being very computer literate, Chuck had a lot of pictures but not a lot of  "traffic."  This year with the help of a new team, we are setting up a more user-friendly way to sell railroad art.  We chose the name http://www.railroadartprints.com/  and have moved our inventory to the new site.  We hope you will enjoy navigating the site, and we plan to expand the offerings for your use.  New items are being added as soon as we can put them up.

You can see Chuck's art each year at the Big Railroad Hobby Show sponsored by the Amherst Railway Society.  In 2007 the show will be at the Eastern States Exposition Center, West Springfield, MA, January 27 and 28.   Check it out at their website, http://www.amherstrail.org./    You'll meet the crew and have a wonderful time.

All year 'round visitors are welcome at Surroundings Gallery & Custom Framing, where Chuck is a humble custom picture framer.  Visit us at 377 Main Street, Gardner, Massachusetts, just north of Route 2 at exit 22.  When you cross under the railroad bridge we are the 5th building on the right, in a restored post-and-beam livery stable.
