Full Steam Ahead! new

A steam train and a Highland cow? It must be Glenfinnan Viaduct! Capturing that moment in time when a splendid steam engine comes chugging along the tracks of the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct, a plume of steam billowing into the lush Inverness countryside. But of course this couldn’t be a Lauren Terry painting without a cow! Up front, you’ll find a curious Highland cow with its adorable shaggy coat and friendly face. After all what Scottish view isn’t improved by a Heeland Coo!

It’s also my very first time painting a train and I must say, it’s a lot harder than painting a cow! But I really enjoyed the challenge. Firstly there is something so impressive about steam engines. I don’t know anyone who isn’t excited by one passing. Secondly as a mum of two boys I spend hours reading about, playing, watching and riding trains. So this piece felt like a homage to them.

Glennfinnan Viaduct

With 21 huge arches The Glenfinnan Viaduct is the longest concrete railway bridge in Scotland. Built in the 1890s by “Concrete Bob” It takes the West Highland Railway over the River Finnan, 100 feet below, on its beautiful journey between Fort William and Mallaig. You may also recognise this view from the Harry Potter films, as it was across this very viaduct that the Hogwarts Express carried Harry Potter and his friends to their school of witch craft and wizardry.

The mix of the playful cow and the stunning viaduct makes for a unique and eye-catching piece. Perfect for anyone who loves a bit of locomotive ‘magic’ and Scottish scenery, this print is a great way to bring a cozy and charming vibe to your home or office.
