"Cathedral Of Steam "

Fairburn tank loco 42152

This page showcases my steam loco artwork.

The great David Shepherd once said that walking into a roundhouse was like walking into a cathedral of steam - he wasn't wrong and so hence the title of my painting showing a labourer, driver and fireman working the table.

This class was amongst the last of the tank engines still to be working on the BR system. 42152 hauled the last steam train on the Eastern Region when it was in charge of the 4:18pm Bradford to Leeds passenger train on 1st October 1967. It reported touched a top speed of 74mph whilst doing so.

 

The artwork shown here has been painted using quality oil paints on a 16inch X 12 inch hand stretched fine Italian cotton canvas which has been well primed using gesso primer.

For sale - £120
