About this title


Every aspect of the link between the railways and the sea is encompassed from freight and goods as well as passengers, to ferries, docks and seaside resorts. The Guild of Railway Artists focusses on this genre with a selection from their finest artists and the collection includes full colour paintings, detailed line illustrations and vignettes. Using a range of painting media including watercolours, acrylics, oils and gouache, the artists capture the magnificence of the engines set in beautiful countryside, the personalities of the railway workers and holiday makers, as well as the gritty realism of the stations, docks and shunting yards. Peter Clayton has contributed an essay which recalls with warmth and gusto his memories of travelling by train on his childhood family holidays to the seaside. He writes of the planning and packing, the bustle and excitement of the stations and the memorable smells and sounds which accompanied them on their journeys.

About the Author:

Peter Clayton has always been fascinated with the railways and after a varied career which included librarianship, advertising and publishing he was probably best known as the presenter of Radio 3's Jazz Record Requests.
