Derwent Walk Express

  • Description

    " A two-thirds life-size representation of a steam train in polychrome relief, set approximately 5 metres up on top of a stone wall. This forms a highly visible gateway to the Derwent Walk pathway which leads to the south. The wall turns on itself so that there are additional façades to the main length which fronts the road. Painted in bright primary colours, the train is depicted moving through an industrial and rural landscape, and small tableaux of animals and vegetation are sited on other angles of the wall. Described as 'probably the only locomotive which tows its own passing landscape behind it'...."
