This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Wilf Hardy.

Wilf Hardy presents us with a stunning vision of the future for Japanese National Railways. Set against the idyllic backdrop of Mount Fuji, Hardy describes to us the futuristic evolution of the train, which, in this instance is to become a super sonic gliding machine, guided solely by separated rail-less pylons.

It is uncertain exactly how much time or money the Japanese National Railways had funded this futuristic vision, but Hardy presents a beautifully illustrated vision.

Original artwork for illustration on pp34-35 of Speed and Power Annual no 1.
