Fowler 4F Attacks the Lickey Incline original oil on canvas
by Ken Allsebrook

~~ Excellent condition, ready to hang ~~

Here Ken has produced a most dramatic original oil painting of LMS Fowler 4F 44202 (in BR black) with a full load of coal, attacking the world famous Lickey incline, the steepest sustained adhesion worked incline in standard gauge in Britain. This looks like it is about 1/2 a mile below the summit at Blackwell but there are plenty of pictures online to make your own mind up. In the distance, at the rear of the train, you can just see the banking engine, most likely the famous Big Bertha, both engines working hard, you can almost smell the scene!

By the accomplished railway artist Ken Allsebrook, (there is one of his works on the BBC your paintings website) we have been fortunate to secure 5 paintings by the artist.

It is an oil on canvas, signed and dated '78 to the bottom left. Also signed to the rear along with "Fowler 4F on the Lickey Incline"
