Plumpton Crossing Gates and Signal Box

Plumpton's historic and listed signal box and manually operated gates are under threat from modernisation. Sadly we might not see this scene next year, so I thought I would paint it for Christmas. I have brought back the steam train and the signal box posters of old, but brought them in with 21st century Plumpton walkers.
I had some very rough handmade paper by Two Rivers. It suited the snow, and I fancied painting something a bit more, free. The paper just suited what I had in mind. I see a few things to finish, I have left the top off my signal...but I must try not to get too wrapped up in detail for a change!!....
