The driver has a last minute check of the motion as the prototype 4.6.0 King class No 6000 “King George V” waits the right away at Paddington with a down express for the West Country.

The year is 1938 so the engine carries the old Great Western livery and above the buffer-beam is mounted the bell presented to the locomotive after its successful visit to the USA some years previously where its performance for an engine of its size astounded American observers.

Painted for a client in acylics about 5 years ago but now I would use oils to heighten the contrasts and smoke effects.
