Shovelling the ash from the smokebox was one of the less savory tasks at a steam depot. The locomotive depicted here is 23-035, a class 23 passenger type which was the final and most modern design built for the Deutche Bundesbahn in the 1950's. The last were retired from Crailsheim Depot in 1976 and several have been preserved. This painting is based on an original transparency in our collection.

Venn Viaduct was on the former GWR line from Taunton to Barnstaple. In this scene an ex. GWR 4300 class mogul heads a local passenger train to Barnstaple.

From the first days of steam trains there were small boys who dreamed of being engine drivers. This wee chap sitting in the drivers seat of an Ivatt Mogul in the 1960s certainly looks to be having his "Best Day Ever". This painting is based on an original transparency in our collection.

Withdrawn from service in Oct 1967, 45000 happily survived having been claimed for the National Collection and is on display at the National Railway Museum, York.

SOLD...."Inchmore Gallery"
----------------------------------------
The Hayling Island Branch which ran from Havant to Hayling South was a little classic in every way. Operated until the end by the tiny A1X Terrier Tank Locos, the line always showed a small profit but the cost of repairs to the Langston viaduct were cited as excuse for closure and it ceased to exist in late 1963.
We were lucky to obtain some original slides taken during the last year of operation of this charming line and my painting depicts a train heading over the Langston bridge in 1963. A lovely scene, gone but not forgotten.

Peter Drummonds' elegant C Class, better known as the "Small Bens", were one of the best and longest lived Highland Railway locomotives. The last
in service, 54398 Ben Alder, was finally withdrawn in 1953 and set aside for preservation. Unfortunately, after 13 years in storage at various
locations, it was decided that it was not required after all and was
scrapped in 1966 leaving only one ex Highland loco in existence (Jones Goods No.103). This has gone down in history as one of the great losses in railway preservation.
This painting is taken from an old black and white negative in our
collection and depicts Ben Alder in store at the side of Lochgorm Works Inverness in 1953. This is such a sad story that I felt compelled to
paint this scene.....a way of bringing it back to life I suppose.
