A Bourne painting showing the construction of Kilsby Tunnel at one of the large diameter air shafts

Bourne was commisioned to paint a number of scenes on the London to Birmigham Railway, including this view of Kilsby tunnel being built. The tunnel was built by driving the tunnel from both ends and from several ventilation shafts which can still be seen today.
