This one is not my usual sort of art and it really stretched me, but its done as a gift for a friend I will be visiting in Arkansas in October. He loves trains.

I think anyone would  be very pleases with this as a gift its great john.  I enjoy seeing working steam trains  on my visit to Snowdonia  i went on 4 different  railway theyre the best way to see the countryside

I will say I'm  not a train nut. i met one on one of the trains , his head was hanging out of the window so he could smell the smoke and feel the steam, his wife sat near us and you could tell there was a total lack of enthusiasm in her Voice  when she spoke about trains , she said every holiday for 40 years had been spent  looking at trains. Thats what i call love putting up with someone with a hobby lol.
