Artists are allowed a little artistic licence here and there! Alan couldn’t resist bringing one of Britain’s most iconic railway routes (the Golden Arrow boat train service from London to Paris 1929-1961) together with one of the pioneer bodies in railway preservation - The Merchant Navy Locomotive Preservation Society and its fabulous locomotive, Clan Line. Alan says: "As a child of the fifties I have vivid memories of holidays in France and the excitement of steaming out of Victoria Station, bound for Dover and on to Calais."
This painting was exhibited in the early 1980’s by the Guild of Railway Artists.
If you're ever in Sussex (a very long way from the Mustard Mill), you may fancy a ride and a very smart 'Pullman luncheon' on a wonderful Golden Arrow train at the Bluebell Railway.
