Here we see the familiar image of Thomas the Tank Engine, sound asleep on his night track. While Thomas is sleeping, two hooded wall artists paint his side. A charming street lamp shines down on the scene. The background is black, as wall artists work at night. The two artists are working quickly but carefully on the darker side of Thomas.
It is hard to say what was on the mind of the artist when he produced this work. The reference from childrens literature is represented by Thomas. Thomas is asleep, unaware of shenanigans being perpetrated on his engine housing. The two artists are making their blow against the empire while no one is looking, to be shown to all when the sun rises.
