Items For Sale
If club members have anything they would like to sell, they can advertise it here. You will need to supply some photographs and a full description of the item and how much you would like for it.
The following models were part of the collection of locomotives and boats owned by the late Tony Mason, a member of our society for number of years.
Tony famously began his collection with purchases from an auction he attended on the spur of the moment after a meeting he was due to attend had been cancelled as a result of the storm of 1987.
Tony wanted members of our club to have first refusal on the models in his collection. Those models that don’t sell to our members will be placed in auction by Tony's widow, Hilary Mason.
