Thames (NZ): Train painting - WAB 796

Apart from being a photographers favourite, artists have always loved to paint/draw the trains of Thames. One such artist was Doug Barker. Below is one that is labelled as WAB 796 BUILT 1926.

On the back is written the following description:
"Drawing shows Wab 796 - Price's first WAB Class leaving works. On special occasions such as first of a class leaving outshop, out came the flags for the photographer.  Total of eight WAB and Class were built - the only difference in class Wab and WS was rear bogie."
