Digital painting by Brian Jones, 370 hours

Limited Edition Giclee Repligraph & Authentication Certificate of only 200 copies

Brian had for a long time visualised and wanted to create a painting featuring the cab environment of a typical Class 40, but had previously never been able to gather quite enough reference material to confidently pull it off - despite spending a lot of time with the fleet in his youth and with a couple of machines later, in preservation. Structuring it was something of a challenge and a compromise. This is 40107, an ‘EQ’ vacuum-braked example in 1981, as it slips in the wet conditions and its Guide Bridge-based Driver begins to complain. This work has decades of Class 40 operating stories to tell and something of a tale of those, often quite senior, ex-steam men, who operated them at this time.
