Sheffield Park Station


This painting was by far the most difficult I have ever done to date (May 2016!).  I try and stretch myself art-wise and this certainly fulfilled its promise.

I spent some time taking photos and all the steam engines come in the other way round so I had to turn this engine round to face us which added to my stress levels. This is because they have no means to turn the trains at Sheffield Park.  The engine is Southern Railway Maunsell ‘U’ class locomotive 1638.  I wanted to replicate the station as it would have been in the 1950’s with the train going through to Lewes.

More recently a top headcode disk has been added which carries a dedication to the late George Nickson, who was responsible for saving the loco from Barry Scrapyard and subsequently dedicated it to the Bluebell.
