Trust member Mike Hill has donated this picture of The Duke for our 2018 Christmas cards.
The painting is Mike’s imagining of the unique British Railway class 8 pacific steam locomotive, “Duke of Gloucester” climbing the Shap incline with the down Mid-Day Scot sometime in 1955-6. A low watery sun is breaking through the clouds to illuminate the locomotive and its train of Mark 1 coaches. Wisps of steam emerge from the safety valves as The Duke makes light work of its task. There is snow on the ground, and the steam heating is warming the carriages.
