By the generosity of Michael Benn
and Associates, the South of England Group hold
the remaining stocks of a series of 25 prints of
the railway paintings of Mike Turner. They cover
steam, diesel and electric locomotives at various
sites throughout the UK. Each print is on matt,
bonded fine-art paper, 310mm by 255mm (that's 12"
by 10" in old money) and comes with an informative
description of the scene, the locomotives and
background to the picture. They are available
exclusively from the South of England Group and
all of the monies raised go towards our support
fund for the NRM.
The artist M A Turner, a Life Member
of the FNRM, is not connected with Michael Turner,
an artist who specialises in motor car and
aircraft subjects, with an occasional railway
picture. "Our" Michael (Mike) Turner, explains
that " these paintings were commissioned back in
the eighties, ... It was unfortunate that my full
name was allowed to go into print at that time. My
paintings are signed M A Turner." Hence the covers
we are supplying with these prints do carry the
name Michael Turner on the front. Mike's projects
have also included a collection of paintings at
the Eurotunnel Exhibition, many of which depict
scenes of bygone Dover and Folkestone, the Golden
Arrow, TGVs etc.
You can see low-resolution
