‘Wish You Were Here’ Mural
Located on the side of Hunter Studios at Elgin Street, this mural depicts the relationship between Maitland’s natural environment and steam trains.
Curated by local artist, Mitch Revs, this mural was inspired by the local scenery in Maitland and features a South Maitland Railway 10 Class Steam Engine hauling coal – Engine No 10.
This train remained in operation at Hexham until the Stockrington Colliery line was closed in 1987. The SMR 10 was featured occasionally at the Hunter Valley Steamfest.
