The Train Spotter (Press/Media)

train spotter at new street stn

The Inspiration:

Train Spotters view the Locomotives and trains at the beautifully designed New Street Station in Birmingham in 1957, before it was sadly demolished in the mid 1960s.

 A 4P Fowler tank locomotive 2-6-2T (no 42395) is waiting to depart from New Street.
