__NOTOC__ " Iron horse" is a literary term for a train or locomotive.
Iron horse may also refer to:
"Iron horse" is an iconic literary term (currently transitioning into an archaic reference) for a steam locomotive, originating in the early Victorian culture (1825–35) when horses still powered most machinery, excepting windmills and stationary steam engines. The term was common and popular in both British and North American literary articles.
Iron Horse, sometimes written Ironhorse, was a motorcycling magazine dedicated to biker culture, published between 1979 and 2011.
Originally a spin-off of Easyriders, it was meant to showcase a broader range of bikes than the Harley-Davidson and Indian models that were getting the lion's share of its sister publication.
Iron Horse (also known as Pegasus Without Wings) was an iron sculpture created by Abbott Pattison on May 25, 1954. The sculpture was initially placed at Reed Hall at the University of Georgia. However, after the sculpture was vandalized by disgruntled students, the statue was secretly moved to a warehouse. It remained there before horticulture professor L.C. Curtis moved it to his farm in Watkinsville, Georgia in 1959 where it stands today. In an interview with The New York Times in 1979, Curtis claimed that he wanted the sculpture from Lamar Dodd, the chairman of the art department at the time, because "I collect conversation pieces. I'm a little bit of an eccentric." Although the sculpture was possessed by Curtis' descendant, Jack Curtis, before his death, the statue is still owned by the University. In fact, the university named its plant sciences farm at Greene County, Georgia after the sculpture. In 2011, the sculpture was vandalized once again. Afterwards, a secret group restored the horse.
The statue faces many visits from tourists and University of Georgia Students.
The early history of the sculpture was depicted in the 1962 National Educational Television film, "Pegasus Without Wings" as well as the 1980 William VanDerKloot documentary, "Iron Horse".
