About this artwork

This was the first screenprint the artist had ever made. Inspired by Almond’s boyhood hobby of train-spotting, it also relates to a series of work in which he commissioned British Rail to make nameplates of his own name in the same styles as the plaques found on the InterCity 125 train. This type of train has a diesel locomotive at each end and is called a ‘multiple coupling’. The title of the print also references the nature of the work, as a multiple print. This work is from a portfolio of prints by eleven different London-based artists, called ‘Screen’. The title is taken from the screenprint technique but also refers to the fact that most of the artists had worked with film or photography.
