Mystery Painting By Chris Grimes

Chris recently came into possession of this painting.

Can anyone please help identify the artist? Initials AWG.


The painting depicts the old road bridge with no sign of the new bridge being built. Period pre 1954.

The locomotive number is 32640, a regular on the branch. Period BR era – post 1948.

My guess is the early 1950’s.

Can anyone help please?

    Can’t help with that, but would like a good copy of the painting for this site:

    BTW, Peter, I’m looking for a brilliant photo you took of the Billy on one of your IOW excursions. Can’t find it on the site – it’s one of the train entering the station

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your reply. I too would like a good copy of this painting for this website. I am extremely busy at the moment but I shall look out for the photo that you mention at the IoW Steam railway as soon as I can.

    Best wishes

    BTW, what do you think of Wendy Heath?
