New Railway Digital Art Image – Class 20 Meets The End Of The Line


I haven’t posted for a while, sometimes real life is really inconvenient and plays havoc with your online life.

Anyway I have been steadily working on some digital art projects and can finally release a new digital painting.

I have aimed for a dark and moody finish to match the sombre events.

Class 20 number 20183 in the process of being scrapped at the end of its railway career

The artwork depicts an English Electric class 20 loco meeting its maker in a scrap yard at the end of its career.

The image shows the remains of the loco in front of a stack of old railway coaches awaiting the same fate.

The scene is based on a scrap yard in Leicestershire that flourished in the mid 80s as British Rail ran down its fleet of stock and locos prior to privatisation. This site was famous for its stack of coaches and a similar stack of locomotives.

English Electric built the Class 20 locos during the mid 1950s.

The Class 20 was an excellent design with several of the original 228 locos still in use today.

During their career you would usually find them running in pairs on coal trains. I have another digital painting depicting a classic scene illustrating these class 20 locos working a coal train in the early 1990s.

I am currently working on another digital painting which will be a tribute to bomber command. I am awaiting further guidance regarding copyright of a couple of elements but essentially the image is ready to go.

Anyway thanks for looking, please feel free to leave me your comments and feedback

cheers
