Hello Mike, I had the opportunity to view your gallery and one of the most detailed galleries I have seen since being a member of FAA, the detail is suburb, composition, color, and it sure has your signature throughout your gallery, certainly a unforgettable impression, Applause, Applause, Applause, A very brilliant artist. Cheers Michael Hoard I have V/F this great piece of art.

Thank you Everett for such a kind comment and your vote.

Many thanks Vivian for such a nice comment.

Just to comment on the actual image, I especially like the green blend on the the metal front of the train, the shadows that fall across the lines, the steam at the wheels, the parcel wagon, and i actually remember the large brick posts, they were a black colour I suppose from all the smoke and maybe coal dust over the years. The draughtsmanship lends realism to the painting too all perspectives and angles seem perfect.

Just great! Although I wouldn't have recognised it by the trains and most railway stations look alike,but because of the detail and storied image I could see myself walking along the platform I often did most Saturdays when I went into town shopping or for a night out with friends and waving goodbye to relatives who left in the seventies for Australia and returned many times for visits. The outer station's building was beautiful and we heard many stories about the Royal parties that took place there. I think one was of one of the queen's birthdays, when she was a teenager. The smell of the station was distinctive and the noise of whistles, wheels, engines, the rush of feet, the newspaper stand or flower and fruit sellers before the machines took over. Thanks for sharing Mike. :))

Thank you Eric for the feature in your group Drawings and Paintings.

Many thanks Krista for the feature in your group Originals that sold.

I know what you mean, back in the fifties Birmingham still had the feeling of a Victorian city, as you say gritty.

Many thanks for your comments Everett, I hope those memories are happy ones.

Thanks for the favourite Linda.
