'Flying Scotsman',

Steam Train –

Original Linocut Print

I’ve always had soft spot for steam trains. I have many childhood memories of family days out to see them. The only time I’d been to York before moving here for a job was to visit the National Railway Museum. I vividly remember arriving at York train station with it's distinctive Victorian arches and it's glass and iron roof. 

 

I decided to base the design based on the engine without the smoke deflectors that were added in 1990. I’ve also used artistic license and printed the whole of the Flying Scotsman in black, rather than Apple Green. It was actually painted totally in black in the wartime years.    

The Flying Scotsman was originally built in Doncaster for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923.

It was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley as part of the A1 class series.

Framed prints

Due to the fragile nature of glass, I am unable to post framed prints. Please get in touch if you would like to order and pick up from my York studio.

Please note that due to the nature of linocut printing being a handmade process, variation will occur.
This adds to their individuality by making each print unique.
