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 National Railway Museum.
I decided to create my first steam train linocut for my dad for Christmas. It had to be the Mallard. The elegant streamlined art deco styling is so iconic. In the 1930s Britain's speed was seen as the ultimate symbol of modernity. The 4468 Mallard is a Class A4 4-6-2 Pacific steam locomotive. The A4 class was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and built at Doncaster Works, England in 1938 for LNER (London and North Eastern Railway).
The Mallard holds the steam locomotive world speed record at 126 mph. It is now held as part of the national steam train collection at the National Railway Museum in York.
Find out how I made it in my Mallard Steam Train linocut print blog.
