Jubilee 4-6-0 at Liverpool, Lime Street by 


THIS PAINTING IS SOLD BUT YOU TOO CAN COMMISSION MIKE TO PAINT YOUR VERY OWN ORIGINAL OF YOUR FAVOURITE STEAM LOCOMOTIVE WHETHER BRITISH OR AMERICAN, A SOUND INVESTMENT FROM WHOM MANY REGARD AS BRITAIN’S LEADING TRANSPORT ARTIST. JUST E-MAIL mike@transportartist.co.uk

Ex-LMS Jubilee 4-6-0 45670 “Earl of Effingham” waits impatiently at Liverpool, Lime Street station with an express for London, Euston sometime in the late 1950s. Ahead of the crew is an arduous climb through the tunnels and cuttings of the main line out of Liverpool but their steed is one of Stanier’s masterpieces of locomotive design and well up to the job.

I remember the graceful Jubilees well but only ever fired one once in my railway career and that was on a Bradford-Bournemouth express from Birmingham New Street to Bristol Temple Meads back in 1957 and we hit 90mph though Ashchurch——— happy days indeed!

The original painting was done about eight years ago on a canvas 48″×36″ in acrylic and cost the client £1500, nowadays I would paint this in oils and the price would be more like £3500.

    Mike, I have been away on holiday and my brother, Ted, has been looking after the group for me therefore I have only just looked at this work and the others you have entered in the group. They are all outstanding works, absolutely first class – the subject matter, colour, shade and the Detail is amazing. In my opinion your work ranks alongside that of Terence Cuneo, Malcolm Root and David Shepherd and perhaps in many respects betters them. Fantastic – I sincerely hope your work and talent finds the fame and fortune it so justly deserves. Dick

  • Thank you, Ted’s brother, for your glowing comments. I only hope I never meet up with you two on the rally circuit, it’ll cost me a fortune in ale!

    This really does capture Lime Street Station and a superb depiction of the LMS loco stock too.

    Mike, work like this speaks volumes for a rear railwayman’s understanding of and feelig for the subject matter.

  • Thank you, Rasendyll, I try my best.

    Mike, as always your work is fantastic. Detailed, without appearing fussed over or overworked. Love the depth of field and the sense of volume you’ve achieved on the engine.

  • Thank you, Gary, coming from a professional like yourself is praise indeed, I must be doing something right.

    Nice shot! But wasn’t the loco named “Howard of Effingham”.
    I know he was an Earl but that wasn’t portrayed on this loco.

  • Could have been, will have to look it up.
