A limited edition reduction linoprint titled ‘Last Coal Train’ by former miner and artist David Wilders. The print is numbered 1/6 and is signed and dated 2018. The image depicts coal being delivered to a power station, showing the cooling towers and chimneys of a power station with a house in the foreground. The artwork was inspired by the closure of the Ferrybridge ‘C’ Power Station in 2016 and the subsequent demolition of five of the eight iconic cooling towers in 2018.
