22nd May 2015
Our specialist Model Railway sale held on 20th May 2015 started with a very busy viewing room, with keen customers queuing at the door at 8.00am!
The sale itself began at 12 noon with the Real Steam section. This Hornby 3½” gauge Stephenson’s Rocket, which had never been fired, sold above estimate at £177 including buyers' premium.
O gauge trains again proved popular, with this modern ACE Trains A4 Pacific class BR 60016 ‘Silver King’ locomotive and tender, selling for £472.
There were two more unusual Bond’s O Gauge locomotives in the sale, which sold for a very respectable combined total of £507.
In the OO gauge section the ever popular Hornby Dublo models included this BR 34042 ‘Dorchester’ locomotive and tender, described as 'excellent in an excellent box', which achieved £259.
And this modest looking GWR 6699 tank locomotive, which sold for £212.
This more unusual Hornby Dublo BR D9001 ‘St. Paddy’ diesel locomotive realised £188.
Bringing the Hornby section right up to date was Lot 639, a modern set of 6 locomotives, commemorating the Great A4 Gathering which sold for £1,032.
Foreign manufactured locomotives were sought after in this sale. Examples included this Swiss made Fulgurex 0-8-0 tank model which achieved £200.
And also from Switzerland, this Lemaco DB 1711 loco and tender model which sold for £271.
The Marklin section was also popular, the majority of the 30 lots offered selling above estimate. This diesel loco set No. 37629 achieved £224.
This Trix Fine Art DB 001 BR 79 locomotive achieved £460, twice its estimate!
