Lithograph, Hold Hard there!, drawn by Henry Alken and engraved by J H Engleheart, about 1845. Depicts a passenger train halted by a pack of hounds tearing a fox apart on the railway line. There are two huntsmen on horseback at the side of the track, one of them pulling up his white horse, which is frightened by the train. On the other side of the line is a field, where two men and a team of horses are ploughing, and in the distance is the spire of a country church.
