As is already evident, I am interested in ‘things railway’ with particular emphasis of steam locomotives.  I especially like large articulated tank locomotives (of which there are various types and wheel arrangements). and inevitably these have appeared in my art. I am particularly interested in the Kitson-Meyer type of articulated locomotives, a little-known variant of articulated tank engine, a type most active in South America, and have posted two examples of this type of locomotive below. They belong to the Tickford Valley Railway Co. (London) Ltd. (TVR), an imagined narrow gauge railway line that is constructed through very hilly and difficult terrain in the western part of New Zealand’s North Island . A 1:148 scale representation of part of this railway (The ‘Kereru Branch’), has been constructed.
