Painting - Oil On Canvas
YOU TOO CAN COMMISSION MIKE TO PAINT YOUR VERY OWN ORIGINAL OF YOUR FAVOURITE STEAM LOCOMOTIVE EITHER BRITISH OR AMERICAN, A SOUND INVESTMENT FROM WHOM MANY REGARD AS BRITAIN'S LEADING TRANSPORT ARTIST. JUST E-MAIL email@example.com
In steam days on British Railways the South Devon banks presented a formidable challange to any steam locomotive so that drivers whose trains were above a certain weight could request a pilot engine be attached to increase the power and prevent stalling on the gradient. If an engine stalled and came to a standstill it would probably not be able to restart and have to call for another engine to assist and this would cause delay to following trains, so a prudent driver would play safe and take a pilot anyway.
Here a Manor pilots a King at just past Aller Junction with the ascent of Dainton bank ahead of them and both engines are giving it all they�ve got to rush the bank and the hills are echoing to their efforts on a summers day in 1958.
Painted for a client based on his favourite photo about 6 years ago in oils on canvas.
An oil painting like this on board or canvas 20″�30″ of your favourite railway subject, British, American or even French, would cost about �2000.
