Peninsula and Oriental

The Inspiration:


freehand and painted in water based oils

After seeing a short video of newly restored Merchant Navy Class no 35006 and hearing steam enthusiast and Fireman Mr Pete Waterman renaming the Locomotive and recognising all the hard work that volunteers on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway have put in over the last 30 years, I felt inspired to create a painting of this magnificent looking steam Locomotive designed by Mr Oliver Bullied in 1941.


It was rescued by volunteers from Barry Scrapyard after the demise of steam in 1968.

“Peninsula and Oriental” renamed Merchant Navy Class no 35006 stands at Broadway Station on a wet night in the Cotswolds.
