The Engineer


I have always thought this Mo Manning image was fantastic and when a friend recently joined the North Norfolk Railway as a volunteer I knew this would be the perfect image to use for him. He took a while to colour with Copics, as always, but I really love this card. I teamed it with First Edition paper, some baker's twine and a new Cheery Lynn choo choo die.

A perfect card for a rail enthusiast. Whenever I see a train like this "Casey Jones" pops into my head. My Sister and I used to sing the tune together back in the early 70's!! xx
