For the regional RTC bus terminal in the historical railroad town of Sparks, NV, artist Donald Lipski designed a vertically exaggerated train cowcatcher to 43’ tall. The terminal’s beam structures also feature Lipski’s artwork in the form of designed cutouts.


In 2010 Lipski created another piece for the RTC terminal at Sparks' sister town, Reno, entitled Jackson.
