21st September 2020
The current COVID-19 heath crisis has led many companies to change their practices to bring them into line with the current government safety guidelines. So, for the safety of our customers and our staff, our 16th September 2020 Model Railway sale was a closed-door auction, with no room bidders allowed.
We were however able to offer viewing of the sale on the Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday before the auction, on a strictly by appointment only basis. Unfortunately, we are still unable to welcome the public to view on the morning of the sale or attend in person the sale itself.
