For those of you interested in railway art, the Guild of Railway Artists includes, among its membership, a superb water colourist who I believe is local to our area of the North West. John Harrison has won several awards in GRA annual competitions and two of his paintings feature the main line at Winwick. The paintings are called 'Winwick Junction' and 'Winter Snow' - they reflect scenes from 1960 and 1962 respectively. They can be found on the GRA website at http://www.railart.co.uk/ under the 'Art Gallery' heading.
Any information about John from anyone out there would be welcome.
