 The Flying Scotsman (portrayed above pulling out of Newcastle Upon Tyne Station in the 1930s) is now back on the rails for tests using the East Lancashire Railway on the 8 January 2015, after extensive restoration work on the Locomotive going back to 2006.

Cheltenham Race Course Station

Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway (UK)

I have been involved with the GWR since 2013, creating Railway scenes in oils, portraying Toddington, Winchcombe and Cheltenham Station so far.

These images are used on Jigsaw Puzzles which are for sale in the Toddington platform shop.

Other merchandise including Postcards and Greeting cards are also for sale. Occasionally I go down and meet some of the volunteers working there and admire the great job they do running the Railway. I also catch up on progress with the re construction of Broadway Station. I take the opportunity to have a train ride as well from Toddington station.
