The Train was inspired by the ‘Seven arches; as the viaduct built in 1885 is known locally, and turned a mundane height control barrier into a piece of art. It was commissioned by Adam Owen, Parks and Countryside manager for Guildford County Council; as part of the larger development and conservation of the area adjacent to canal and railway. It was paid for by Rushmon Homes as a contribution to the local community. The Drummond 7 was used extensively on the Southern Rail network in the days of steam and this one celebrates both that eira and some of the typical animals found in the area. Made out of steel measuring 5.4 meters long and weighing 200kg the train comprises, the M7 loco, four double bogie flat bed wagons and a guards van. Its cargo comprises stainless steel animals inspired by the natural history surveys of the area. Being galvanised it is destined to become a landmark for adults and children for the decades to come. It was sited in 2009 soon after a similarly innovative overthrow was installed at some allotments near the A3.
