The old Guild of Railway Artists website
We've now embarked on the massive task of rebuilding of our website. This is being done in order to make it more mobile and tablet friendly.
Please bear us while we transfer the art gallery and pages from the old to the new layouts.

John wiped the board taking second place and third place too with 'North Sea Night Hawk' and 'Memories of Honeybourne' (see Rail Art 2015 poster).

George Busby Award

Ramsbottom Railway Station
Whilst this award is normally judged by the Selection Panel for the annual Rail Art exhibition for what is considered to be the best painting selected for exhibition in a water based media, due to logistical reasons the Guild Council agreed that this year the award be given to the highest scoring painting, in a water based medium, voted for by visitors to the exhibition in the Picture of the Year Award.
The winning picture is 'Grey Day At Ramsbottom', an acrylic painting by David French GRA.
