A Glimpse of the Past


Brilliant. I used to ‘play’ in the old steam loco graveyard that was in Barry dock many decades ago so I’ve always loved them since. A lovely reminder. Thanks

Superb painting, loved them as a kid, and like Brian I was lucky to see them at Barry dock on my way to RAF St Athan, great memories invoked by you both.

Great painting Barry

Feel as if that train is moving ready to take one away from all these dark times. The steam and atmosphere are very palpable Barry.

Love this, Barry. As usual, well painted. Your treatment of the people is so good. It brings back good memories, when I was a kid there were a few steam trains still running...especially on 'day excursions' to the seaside towns in Kent. So...really fond memories.

I like this painting very much Barry. Especially the atmosphere of it.

Another fine picture Barry.

Excellent painting

That’s wonderful Barry. The light is great and it’s bursting with atmosphere.

Brilliantly painted...love the steam!
