John Austin - Night Hawk - A3 60078 (W)
Railway Train Steam Locomotive Fathers Day Birthday Card featuring Gresley A3 60078 Night Hawk from a painting by John Austin GRA
In one of John Austin's most evocative paintings we see 60078 "Night Hawk", a Gresley A3 pacific built as an A1 in 1924 and rebuilt to the standard seen here in 1944. She would gain a double chimney and 'German' smoke deflectors in 1959 before final withdrawal in 1962. At the time of the painting, the locomotive was based at Haymarket.
