Painting Description

This painting by Roger (who is a steam enthusiast) is but one of many he has painted over the past 40 years! This picture depicts David Shepherd (with his back towards us) @ East Somerset Railway, Cranmore. David is pointing towards his now Famous “Black Prince”. He purchased this Standard 9F class 92203 locomotive for £3000 in 1967 from British Rail.

Black Prince became a record holder when in September 1982 it hauled the heaviest train ever by a steam locomotive in Britain, starting an incredible 2,178 ton train at a Foster Yeoman quarry in Somerset.
