In fact, so many of his train stations are on display in rural town offices and museums that you could do a driving tour of them--if Hobbs could remember where they all are. Carberry and Neepawa town offices each have one, Hartney town office has two, and if you feel like a coffee, stop at Country Corner Cafe in Ninga to see another painting. A Hobbs painting also hangs in the Westoba Credit Union in Rivers, the Dauphin Rail Museum and the Beckoning Hills Museum in Boissevain.
