This Birthday card for him has a delightful painting of the Mallard steam locomotive at Newcastle train station. The painting is by UK artist Robert Nixon who hails from West Yorkshire. He paints fine oil paintings of steam locomotives, railways, trams, buses, haulage and delivery vehicles and his paintings can be found on greeting cards, calendars and jigsaws.
The Mallard steam locomotive was built at Doncaster Works in 1938. On 3rd July 1938 the Mallard set a new steam locomotive world speed record, racing down Stoke Bank at 126mph - this record still stands.
