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: Inspired by the sheer elegance and latent power that emanates from the dynamic design of Gresley’s A4 this picture depicts BR No. 60024 “Kingfisher” heading into Peterborough pulling a rake of Gresley teak coaches. The fact that coaches have not been painted the crimson and cream of early BR days it can be surmised that the subject date of this picture is probably 1950.
