Brunel�s awesome bridge spanning the Tamar was a wonder of its day and more than 150 years after opening is still doing it�s job and while also still impressive is now somewhat overshadowed by the road bridge built alongside it in the 1960s.
Seen here is a Castle class 4.6.0 crossing into Cornwall with a train for Penzance, it has most likely taken over the train from a King class locomotive at Plymouth North Road as the Kings with an axle load of 22 tons were too heavy for the bridge, hence a King was never seen in Cornwall. Far below on the Cornwall shore of the river stands the old Saltash ferry once the main gateway for road vehicles between Devon and Cornwall until the 1960s.
Painted in acylics on a 20″�30″ canvas this viewpoint is one that is impossible for a camera unless it was strapped to a seagull! A painting like this in oils would cost about �3000.
