A Little on the Collection

This item is from a stunning single-owner, lifetime collection of British, American & Continental G Scale & Gauge 1 locomotives, coaches & wagons. All models have had an initial clean although some may require a little extra polishing/dusting.

The collection is a mix of items which have been run outdoors and those which have either been on display or have been collected and have remained in their original or respective boxes.
