City of Truro on the SVR

The Inspiration:

freehand and painted in oils


We witness the famous City of Truro no 3440 hauling a passenger train crossing the B4343 road from Cleobury Mortimer on into Bridgnorth Station on the Severn Valley Railway in the late 1960s.

She achieved over 100 mph on a short test run and was built at Swindon Works for the GWR in 1903 as part of a 10 number City Class of passenger locomotives at the time.

It was designed by Railway Engineer G J Churchward
