Two King class locomotives storm out of Newton Abbott with an express for Plymouth on a busy Summer Saturday in the mid-fifties when holiday trains and specials had to be worked into an already tight timetable. Within a mile the train would reach the start of Dainton bank the first of the fearsome Devon gradients on the route to the West.

This oils on canvas was painted a few years ago for one of my best clients, a true Great Western enthusiast Pete Underhay whom I would like to thank for kindly sending me this image to use as I may.

A railway painting of this complexity would cost in the region of £3000.
