Artist's Description

One of my childhood joys was train spotting. It was the age of steam and I loved the sight and sound of the monster engines as they raced through the countryside. I was far to young to understand pollution and it never occured to my schoolboys mind that one day, these beautiful giants would be laid to rest. The atmosphere and smell on the main stations filled me with awe. Fortunately, my dad drove these wonderful creations and Mum, Dad, my sister and me made frequent railway trips, mainly to the seaside. Wonderful memories.
This image started out as a pencil sketch, copied from a magazine, then scanned and digitally painted in Photoshop and Painter.
A tribute to days gone by.
