The artist and conservationist David Shepherd had a life-long interest in railways. They were not only the subject of many of his paintings but he also actively supported railway preservation in the UK and abroad. He was instrumental in setting up the East Somerset Railway and owned a number of steam locomotives, the most famous of which were Class 9F Black Prince, later sold to the North Norfolk Railway, and BR 4MT The Green Knight, later sold to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

In this book J. C. Jeremy Hobson, professional author and David Shepherd’s youngest son-in-law, has drawn on access to family archives, paintings, drawings and photographs, private diaries and reminiscences, to create a unique portrait of a remarkable man’s life-long interest in railways with examples of his stunning paintings of steam locomotives showing these magnificent machines in their full working glory.
