Six of the Best Framed Print by David Bell
90706 Six of The Best Print, £59.99
On the 3rd July 2013 The National Railway Museum in York hosted a very special gathering. Six Class A4 locomotives were reunited to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Mallard's 126mph speed record for steam traction a record which stands to this day.
Designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and built between 1935-36, the Class A4s were the streamline 'bullet trains' of their era.
In this superb painting by David C Bell Mallard - shown centre stage - is flanked by Bittern, Dominion of Canada, Union of South Africa, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Sir Nigel Gresley. The combination is hugely impressive and quite possibly unique.
Mounted and framed size 18x11".
