Carnforth Connection by Alan Gunston


Made famous by Sir David Lean's iconic 1946 film, 'Brief Encounter', Carnforth's heritage is irrevocably linked with the UK's railway heritage. This 1960’s image is based on Carnforth Station’s famous joint LNWR and Furness curved platforms and unique 1882 station junction signal box, with a Barrow-in-Furness to London Euston train headed by Jubilee class locomotive 45698 ‘Mars’.

This particular setting remains largely unchanged today, having been retained as an integral part of the Carnforth Station Heritage Centre which commemorates the town’s important railway connections and the film.

You'll see two different shapes of image in our gallery above, our more standard 'almost square' shape, and and one which is more rectangular.

The more rectangular version is in a traditional railway carriage print style, a very thoughtful way to commemorate the heritage of Carnforth Station. These carriage prints are only available framed.

We've chosen a frame we think suits the work, and provided you with two images of this framed print in a standard size, so you can see how it will look on your wall. One is slightly 'warmer' looking; one is slightly more 'cool' looking, to reflect the different temperatures of light you might have in your home.

No mount, brown-stained frame, glass spacer

Original medium: oil painting.
