High Halstow Station c.1960

As a boy living in High Halstow Kent, I remember that one of the main exciting events during our day was the occasional steam train passing throught the outskirts of the village from either Gravesend or Allhallows. My brother and I would sometimes run down to either the village station or to the next bridge over the line on the road to Hoo, when we could all see it passing under our feet and covering us with smoke soot and cinders.

So I painted it: –
