My brother-in-law/cousin is a keen train enthusiast with a substantial model layout in his spare room. He also used to train spot at the same time as I did and it was reminiscing with him that inspired me to want to do a drawing of this fondly remembered engine. Fired with interest I did some googling and found a couple of photo's of similar engines (different numbers but the same class) online. I used them for reference to recreate engine 41218 in graphite.
It's been a long time since I last did anything like this and I thoroughly enjoyed every second.
N.B. For any beginners interested I've posted a series of Work-in-progress photo's on my web site.
