I call this one “Through the Wall”. A Stanier Black Five 4-6-0 makes its way through the purpose made arch in the medieval town walls of Conway (nowadays called Conwy) in the early 1960s. To me, scenes like this capture the spirit of the dying days of the working national steam railway. Through the Wall 0 1 0 Published: April 28th 2021
Just finished a ‘digital oil painting’, using the Procreate app (no connection except as satisfied user) of a locomotive.
This is a London and North Western Railway Webb Compound, one of the “Dreadnought” 2-2-2-0´s, built between 1884-8 and scrapped 1903-05, No. 2063 “Huskisson”, a tribute by the LNWR to the politician killed by Stephenson’s Rocket at the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. He had the sad distinction of being the first recorded railway fatality.
The locomotive is replenishing its water supply from water troughs between the rails.
