Waiting For The Train (Birmingham New Street)

The Inspiration:

(freehand and painted in water based oils)

This painting was inspired by a black and white photograph taken by Mr Leonard Stace in the early 1960’s.

A perishing cold morning on platform 10, New Street Station, Birmingham UK. waiting for the train, which was late.

A Stanier Black 5 waits for the signal on the middle Line

A scene I witnessed as a young train enthusiast standing on the platform.
