Bidders were queuing at the door to begin viewing our second model railway auction of the year. It was no wonder as there were plenty of lots to suit every collector's taste with over 400 lots for bidders to choose from.

We began with the O gauge section where this lovely modern ACE Trains LNER 2505 ‘Cameronian’ A3 Pacific Class 4-6-2 locomotive and tender realised £554.

 

In the OO gauge section we offered an extensive range of brass American pattern locomotives which proved particularly popular with buyers.
