This was my first major public commission the brief for which was to feature an original and a modern train from Glasgow's Underground railway.

In addition there are passengers from different eras, scenes from the city itself including the Govan shipyards, St. Enoch (the original main station of the system) and the docks.

There are graphics of the various names under which the railway has operated from the Glasgow city coat of arms to the S.P.T. logo of the present day.

The painting featured in a very enjoyable 'artist in residence' day at the Underground's engineering works in Govan. It is now on display in the Kelvinbridge transport museum in the city.
