Oil on canvas.
At the end of the era of steam, David took many photos as well as painting many sketches. This is one of his paintings that remained in his attic for many years and is the first time of going on sale. Here David witnessed BR Class 5 in a filthy condition in the sunlight under Guildford coaling stage – hence the dark background. He sketched a number of studies of ‘Class 5’, less than 20 years old with many years of potential life ahead. David quotes: ‘ Note the rust marks on the boiler due to previous occasions of excess heat which removed the paint. There is no attempt to keep the shed and its surroundings clean and tidy. Engines were strippped wherever they stood, someone else would pick up the pieces.’
