Golden train for Stourhead

We are about to put in our two last installations at Stourhead , the National Trust property in Wiltshire as part of the sculpture trail "Stourhead will never forget" to commemorate the effect of World War 1 on the community. We are creating a nursery scene to commemorate the life of Harry Hoare who was brought up at Stourhead and was  the heir to the estate. He was killed in November 2017 in Palestine. The pieces in the nursery will have intimations of that sad end. This is the golden train that  will be part of the installation. Harry Hoare died after being wounded trying  to rescue horses at Mughar Ridge in Palestine.
