An exhibition of paintings by Paul Howard

Paul’s fascination with railways began in the 1950s when, as a small boy, he spent many happy hours “helping” in his father’s signal box at Boston in Lincolnshire. This inspired him to train as a signal engineer and his career with British Rail was to span almost forty years. Disillusioned by the fragmentation of the Railway Network by privatisation, he leapt at the opportunity of voluntary redundancy to turn his passion for painting into a full-time occupation.

Flying Scotsman

Accompanying famous engines such as The Flying Scotsman, Mallard, City of Truro, Hereward the Wake and many Lincolnshire railway scenes, Paul has developed an exhibition recording a personal history in his railway paintings. Using pen and wash, acrylic and watercolour, he portrays the different facets of his workday observations, not just railway engines but the flora and fauna of the embankments, the landscapes, and of course, the odd signal box!

These paintings have a story to tell, and the exhibition creates a fascinating picture of the railways in a different era.

The exhibition is open 10am to 4pm daily from Monday 09 September until Saturday 21 September.

Paul Howard is a professional artist and demonstrator.
