‘Mallard’

An oil painting on canvas of the the Mallard steam engine passing through York Station.

‘Mallard’, the world’s fastest steam engine passing through York Station, the painting is seen here when she was brought out of mothballs in 1988 when it took part in commemorations
Designed by Nigel Gresley, this loco holds the record for speed, on 3 July 1938, the A4 class locomotive Mallard raced down Stoke Bank at 126 mph to set a new steam locomotive world speed record that still stands today.

I found a photograph of Mallard years and years later with the intention of doing a painting, this happens to be the first time I have painted a steam train.
