Philip D. Hawkins -On Time - 6008 King James II
Steam Train Railway Birthday Card with King class 6008 King James II by Railway Artist Philip D. Hawkins
One of the finest classes of express steam locomotives built in Britain, the King's were physically much smaller than the engines of other railway companies. Yet, their four cylinder 4-6-0 design gave them a power and weight which restricted them to all but the the sturdiest rails. They were loved by the public and crews alike and gave some sterling performances in their near forty years of working.
An evocative painting that shows the aura of the locomotive, this railway greeting and birthday card by Philip D. Hawkins is ideal for any Great Western fan.
