This is an excellent Book. It shows and describes how Cuneo went about preparing and painting some of the most iconic images of some classic trains. Mainly steam, that I love, but also diesel and electric. Often this involved him in sitting out in some very exposed locations in wild weather, Forth Bridge, Tay Bridge for example, to capture the atmosphere of the location.
A Classic book, in excellent condition. I will treasure it.

I was born into the age of steam (1940) so I grew up with the magnificent engines of the Great Western Railway, LNER & LMS & now at aged just over 72 I have been reunited with my youth by the magnificent sketches & paintings of the master. He through his incredible talent has awakened my interest not only in trains but in all aspects of engineering and fine art,which I have loved but have never been able to take up. I have now a very fine collection of great artists Malcolm Root, Don Breckon et al.,who give me hours of relaxation and pleasure. I am now seeking the book of his military paintings to complete my little collection ( at a reasonable price of course ! ) I would heartily recommend anyone who has a love of railways to buy this book if you can get it.

The book was supplied by a firm in Ringmer Sussex and arrived very quickly.
I have admired Terence Cuneos work ever since seeing his Railway posters back in steam train days.He is a talented artist who has worked all over the world and his attention to detail is admirable.I enjoyed looking for the mice!
