  1. 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?
