Barry J. Freeman’s railway paintings capture the essence and grandeur of the steam locomotive at work. With the deft use of his paint brush he can convey the romance, elegance, scenery and the speed of the trains featured with breathtaking reality. He is a true master of his craft.
Using his paintings as inspiration Hornby has created a selection of limited edition train packs featuring not only the relevant painting of Barry J. Freeman but the corresponding Hornby model together with a numbered certificate. Each pack will be limited to just 1000 pieces.

YEAR INFORMATION
2010 The Somerset & Dorset had a rather complicated history but after 1948 the line basically remained unchanged until closure in 1966. In 1951 which is the subject date of the painting, one of Bullieds West Country Class Pacifics ran a series of trials over the line. Chilcompton Tunnel was the back drop for this painting where Dorchester can be seen pulling a rake of ex LMS coaches out of the tunnel avoiding a grass fire that had started on the nearside. A group of permanent way workers can be seen waiting for the train to pass so that they can asses the situation.
