Art Defines Us!
Art takes on many forms. The interpretation of subject matter in art is as varied as the number of artists depicting that subject.
Just as Rembrandt and Picasso renditions of a common scene will appear vastly different, so will the model railroad interpretations of a prototype and a freelance model railroader vary.
Here at HOME SHOPS we recognize that the Freelance Model Railroad community is vibrant and we wish to showcase that art in all of its forms!

"HOME SHOPS" the Painting!
What a better way to convey freelance creativity as art than to portray freelance railroads IN art...A painting commissioned to world renown railroad artist Robert West to be exact! That is right, to celebrate the launch of Home Shops we have commissioned a painting that will include all seven freelance road names of our first release!
This commemorative painting will be something special and will fit right in hanging on the wall of your Club Layout or even your own Home Shop!
Limited Edition 18"x24" "HOME SHOPS" lithographs, numbered and signed by Robert West, will be available exclusively through Home Shops while supplies last! Own a piece of model railroad history as art celebrating the creation of a great company does not happen very often! Robert West exemplifies his mastery of fluorescent paints in this unique work as he hi-lights many shop employees performing prototypical tasks on the cars!
