Artist's Description

THIS PAINTING IS SOLD BUT YOU TOO CAN COMMISSION MIKE TO PAINT YOUR VERY OWN ORIGINAL OF YOUR FAVOURITE STEAM LOCOMOTIVE WHETHER BRITISH OR AMERICAN, A SOUND INVESTMENT FROM WHOM MANY REGARD AS BRITAIN’S LEADING TRANSPORT ARTIST. JUST E-MAIL mike@transportartist.co.uk

Some time in the late thirties GWR 6023 “King Edward II” steams along the sea wall near Teignmouth with an Up express for Paddington. The thirty Kings built between 1927-30 were designed for the heaviest express trains and with an axle load of 22 tons were restricted to the West of England main line from Paddington as far as Plymouth [ no King ever crossed Brunel’s Tamar bridge ] and the Paddington -Birmingham -Wolverhampton main line. The one exception was the branch line from Newton Abbott-Kingswear where the mighty locomotives could be seen on occasion meandering down to Kingswear on the single track section from Paignton with huge excursion trains.
A painting like this of your favourite vehicle, British or American, in oils on canvas or board would cost about £2000.
