Duchess In Defiance (on the LMS network)

The Inspiration:

(freehand and painted in oils)

Commissioned by Mr Ray Pettit.

The beauty and majesty of the Duchess and Coronation Class steam locomotives, designed by Sir William Stanier.

Here we have No 6233 in LMS livery, Duchess Of Sutherland hauling an express on the LMS network defying the elements.

The locomotive was later renumbered 46233 under British Railways from 1948.
