Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!

    A great find, well worth the read. Turner, like others such as Courbet, really heralded the impressionists as they turned to a real world depiction, arguably for us modellers like the move from shiny idealised tinplate to weathered realism over the last 50 or so years. I don’t think it too big a stretch to see the likes of Illiffe-Stokes as the heralds of the new age of railway realism?
