Coasting gently into Paddington station 4-6-0 Castle No 7017
“G.J.Churchward” at the head of the Up “Torbay Express” in the late 1950s. Even though this scene is some ten years after Nationalisation every thing here is pure Great Western except the Scammell mechanical horse in the background in British Railways livery.

On Britain’s railways “Up” was always towards London so even, for instance, when a train left Kings Cross, London for Waverley,Edinburgh it took the “Down” line even though on the map it was North-bound and the train leaving Waverley would take the “Up” line South-bound to Kings Cross.

An oil painting like this on board or canvas 20″×30″ of your favourite railway subject, British, American or even French, would cost from £2500.

    This reminds me of David Shepherd’s work. It is excellent (both his work and yours).

  • Thank you, sir, but David Shepherd? Who he? Oh, I know, the elephant guy of course!
