John Austin - Coronation Crossing the Border - A4 4488 (W)
4488 Union of South Africa Railway Train Steam Locomotive Fathers Day orBirthday Card from a painting by John Austin GRA
One of the famous LNER 'Streamlined' trains and the first to run from
London to Edinburgh, the 'Coronation' remains one of the most striking trains
ever to run in Britain. The four A4 locomotives intended to pull the train were
each outshopped in Garter Blue and Red with silver lettering and named for
Dominions of the British Empire. The train is seen with 4488 'Union of South Africa'
at its head.
John Austin's Railway Art Card would be ideal for any Railway Enthusiast and especially those with a love of the LNER
