Local auction surprise
« on: Sep 06 2019 10:42 »




You never know what might appear at a local auction and I was ten minutes too late yesterday to secure this.  It was described as "large brass train" which I suppose it is!  Sold for £280.

Just to be clear, that was £280 for the Prairie and two carriages.

Sorry you missed it Mike - even though GW isn't your thing!

Highly likely to appear again on a well-know web auction site in the near future, with an additional '0' on the price?

Wow Mike, and was this 2.5” gauge?  What a bargain!

Yes, they are Chinese-made GRS Gauge 3.

Just shows that everyone should keep an eye on their local auction houses.
