Warwick Annear NZR J1211 'Gloria'
Forty NZR J class steam locomotives were built by North British Locomotive Works, Scotland. The locomotive was notable in that it had a boiler that was partly streamlined. J1211 was purchased by a syndicate from NZR in 1971 and moved to Steam Incorporated's site at Paekakariki. In 1978, Ian Welch purchased it outright and moved it to Glenbrook Vintage Railway for restoration. J1211 is named 'Gloria' and has been fitted with original style streamlining. It was converted to oil firing in 1996.
J1211 is owned and operated by Mainline Steam (www.mainlinesteam.co.nz) and this art print is offered with their approval.
This Limited Edition print (based on a pencil drawing) is personally signed and numbered by the artist and is printed on A3 size silk finish 180gsm paper suitable for framing. The paper is archival quality (said to last for 200 years).
