Manufacturer's Description

"A Date with the Duchy" print, numbered limited edition certificate, BR Castle Class "Taunton Castle", two BR Mk1. Composite coaches, BR Mk1 Brake coach.

Barry J. Freeman set the date of this striking picture in 1957 during the days when the Western Region went through a period of creating named trains and there coaches were once more painted in the chocolate and cream colours of the old GWR.
