‘Late Workers’ - Rebuilt SR Merchant Navy Class, 35008 ‘Orient Line’, near Medstead, late 1950s
Rebuilt SR Merchant Navy Class 35008 ‘Orient line’

The sight of this beautiful engine climbing hard on a diverted ‘up’ working is enough to pull a glance from the farmworkers, who are also working into the evening stooking wheat, in what must have been a once common scene, soon to disappear from the countryside. I must be one of very few of my generation to have carried out this task in earnest on a number of occasions!

Oil on Canvas Board, Size c. 20” x 16”. Price £723 (+p&p large)
