Malcolm Root - 6000 King George V
Birthday/ Greeting Card featuring GWR Locomotive 6000 King George V from a Railway Art Painting by Artist Malcolm Root
Sporting the bell given to the locomotive during its American tour of 1927, Great Western 6000 King George V speeds along on the Cornish Riviera Express. Such trains were the staple of summer traffic for much of the 1930s and took the locomotives through and around some of Britain’s best scenery. Small in size but powerful, the 4-cylinder Kings provided the Western’s main motive power until displacement by diesels in the 1960s.
An evocative painting that shows the immense power of the locomotive, this railway greeting and birthday card by Malcolm Root is ideal for any Great Western fan.
