Posted on

Cuttlestones’ Wolverhampton Auction Rooms has a real treat in store for model railway enthusiasts later this month, with an extensive specialist section within its Wednesday 16th March sale dedicated to a large collection of railway-related items.

Lots include highly collectable narrow gauge model trains made by Marklin, Fleischmann, Atlas, , Graham Farish, and Bachmann alongside some Hornby ‘00’ gauge and a very large quantity of railway interest books covering British and Worldwide steam trains, railway history etc. The collection also includes boxed die cast cars including Spark, Minichamps, and Matrix, vintage Corgi and Matchbox vehicles in original boxes, boxed Lego Technic Sets, Tamiya model kits, a large quantity of jigsaws and more. Saleroom Manager, Rosie Blackburn, says:

“Narrow gauge model railways have huge and loyal following of collectors. We regularly see model trains and related accessories pass through the saleroom, but to sell a single collection of this size is rare. There are some fantastic lots that are likely to cause quite a stir among the collecting community as everything is in such fantastic condition – a couple of examples include 3 Fleischmann N Gauge piccolo engines – Nos. 7364, 847385 and 827320 – carrying an estimate of £200 – 300 and another set of 3 Graham Farish N Gauge Locomotives ‘Masterpieces in Miniature’ – Nos. 1811, 1851 and 1822 – which should fetch between £100 – 150. It should present a great example for keen collectors to boost their collections with some fantastic quality additions.”

The auction will take place online only on Wednesday, 16th March – bidders can register to bid live online via www.the-saleroom.com or www.easyliveauction.com – alternatively commission bids may be lodged in advance or lines booked for telephone bidding direct with the saleroom.
