This is similar to my " Up express to Paddington" but a far lighter version done at the same time some years ago.
The Castle class of the Great Western Railway were the most successful and efficent passenger express locomotives of any railway in Britain and perhaps the World. There may have been more powerful engines, or faster engines but on a day to day basis a Castle, due to its sound basic design, exacting Swindon engineering, the Great Western’s high standard of maintenance and the skill of the footplatemen, really did deliver the goods, or perhaps we should say the passengers.
An oil painting like this on board or canvas 20”x30” of your favourite railway subject, British, American or even French, would cost about £2000..
