Yorkshire artist Ashley Jackson created history last night with the launch of Grand Central Railway’s ‘art train’ – thought to be the first in the world. Operating on the East Coast Line the train will contain prints by Ashley – and even his sketches in the toilets. This unique moving gallery will not only spread the word about Yorkshire throughout the country but will also take art to the people – a philosophy in which Ashley strongly believes. Yorkshire connections with the train are also maintained in the fact that the nameplate was made in Heckmondwike at the Procast foundry. Ashley is pictured here with Stephen Cliff of Procast.
