Water colour by S. W. A. Newton of a 4-4-0 Great Central locomotive at Chesterfield

Water colour by S. W. A. Newton of a 4-4-0 Great Central locomotive at Chesterfield

L1223. This water colour proves that S. W. A. was skilful with the brush, as well as the camera. Completed in 1919, it is a colourful depiction of the railway congestion that existed at Horns Bridge in the Derbyshire town of Chesterfield. At the centre - true to his own obsession - is the Great Central's 4-4-0 Class 11E 'Director' locomotive No. 434 THE EARL OF KERRY. Crossing the girder bridge on the right is a Midland Railway loco, whilst towering over the scene another Great Central engine hauls a passenger service across the girder viaduct which bore the company's Chesterfield to Lincoln line. On the right is the famous crooked spire of St Mary's and All Saint's Church.
