A Little on the collection:
From a superb single owner collection of Gauge 1 live steam locomotives that will be coming up for sale on our website in the next couple of weeks.
All have been operated by an experienced modeler and have been serviced by the owner prior to sale.
The collection includes many hard to find items including Aster locomotives and many from well known builders such as John Barret, Dave Baker and Felix Spring.
All were bought to be used as smooth and powerful locomotives and as such, have been built by renowned builders, factory built by Aster, or in a few cases built by the owner himself (who built many Aster kits for others).
For a full list of items available please feel free to email or call.
