Emotions are the driving force when an artist puts brush to canvas. This is the fifth fine-art book by the Guild of Railway Artists since being formed just over 30 years ago, but one with a difference. Earlier titles adhered to a specific theme, but this time the artists have been given the freedom to choose their own railway scene. They were simply asked to paint pictures of subjects that have inspired them personally. This is unusual for many of the artists concerned as more often than not they work to strict commissions. This is a unique selection of paintings by Britain’s top railway artists.
