This is a sepia version (thanks to Gimp) of my graphite pencil drawing of a 9F type steam locomotive powering through the hills of Yorkshire.
When I was young I lived in a village, in Yorkshire, that was a train spotters dream and during the steam era, every young boy was a train spotter and dreamed of being a train driver.
The village played host to two of the largest rail companies in the country ie LNER – London and North Eastern Region and LMS – London, Midland, Southern. Together with a cross country line the crossing lines made a triangle that allowed the trains on all 3 lines to be watched.
