An image of a painting of about 25 years ago depicting a Castle class 4.6.0 approaching Starcross with an Up express for Paddington. Starcross was the site of one of the pumping stations for Brunel’s ill-fated atmospheric railway which was an attempt to replace locomotive hauled trains with a system using a vacumn in a central pipe to propel a train along the rails. Needless to say this brave experiment was a failure and abandoned after a few years but a few of the buildings that housed the machinery have survived, the one at Starcross being a museum now.
Painted in oils on canvas ten or more years ago a painting like this would cost about £2500.
