David Bell made his name as a marine artist, having spent time in the merchant navy, but his boyhood passion was for the railways, fuelled by visits to Doncaster Carr shed during the last days of steam. This selection of his detailed yet atmospheric watercolour paintings and pencil sketches presents a mixture of scenes, from nostalgic imaginings of the great locomotives in their heyday to preserved steam railways and exhibits at the National Railway Museum.
