"I first saw an example of Brian’s work when I was looking for paintings of my locomotive 61306 ‘Mayflower’. His representation of the locomotive at Shildon in 1975 was a stunning introduction to his amazing paintings. The photographic quality of the images of Barry take me right back to the times I went there and walked up and down the rows of locos waiting to be rescued. I am delighted that his work is now available for everyone to enjoy."
“I came across Brian's paintings during a search of images from Dai Woodham’s scrapyard at Barry. I was immediately amazed at the sheer quantity and quality of his work, which were by far the most accurate and detailed paintings of the scrapyard I had ever seen. He was an extremely talented artist and captured the vivid colours of engines that had been in the sea air at Barry for so many years.”
“Brian’s work is truly outstanding! I have followed his work for many years and he was a keen supporter of the Tanfield Railway. His artworks capture the essence of steam, both working and unrestored. They provide an insight into our heritage.”
