Memories of Steam. Oil on canvas, 75 x 50 cm, 2018. One of my favourite locomotives, the 59 class locos were built in the USA between 1952 and 1953. 5917 was originally an oil burner converted to coal once the shortage of the day had been overcome. Principally designed as a freight loco, it was occasionally seen at the head of passenger trains and in later years helping to push diesel locomotives up Raglan and Tumulla banks, much to the amusement of steam enthusiasts. It’s always been a popular locomotive with train buffs particularly when it ran the picnic train at Kiama New South Wales. I have featured the locomotive in the painting somewhat more dominantly to capture the power and presence of the Mikado.
