The Great Goodbye from the Shildon Six. Following the ‘Great Gathering’ of the last six A4 locomotives at the National Railway Museum in York in July 2013, the locomotives were on display in various locations across the UK until their final meeting the following February at the NRM’s Shildon base. This gathering was affectionately known as the ‘Great Goodbye’ and attracted rail enthusiasts from far and wide. The six remaining A4 locomotives had been reunited to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Mallard’s 126mph speed record for steam traction – a record which stands to this day. In this superb painting by David C Bell, Mallard – on the far right, 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. The print itself, strictly limited to 100 signed editions, is a thrilling, romantic image of six magnificent leviathans united in a show of truly awe-inspiring power. Mounted and framed with a numbered certificate. Overall size 29"x19".
