Mountsorrel Railway limited edition prints on sale

A local artist has painted a superb watercolour scene of the Mountsorrel Railway. The painting is evocatively titled "The Way Forward" and shows sole surviving Mountsorrel Railway steam loco, Peckett 0-4-0 tank engine "Elizabeth", coming through the Wood Lane bridge with a rake of Mountsorrel granite wagons.

Watercolour prints to go on sale

The painting gives an exciting insight into the historical recreations the restored branch line will be able to portray.

The artist has kindly allowed us to commission a run of limited edition prints of the painting, which we are selling with all proceeds going directly to the Mountsorrel Railway track appeal.

The prints are available in two sizes:
  1. The first comes in a 20" x 16" mount for only £20. A frame can be supplied for an extra £7 if desired.
  2. The second size comes in a 12" x 10" mount for £15 with a frame available for an extra £5 if desired.
If you are not local we can mail the prints to you, charging postage and packing at cost.

The limited edition run is of only 150 in each size. The larger prints will be available on the week beginning 15 November 2010, with the smaller size the following week. We have already taken many advance orders, so interest is high!

If you would like to see steam trains run along the Mountsorrel Railway and onto the Great Central Railway again, then please help the track appeal by buying a print.
