It’s not long now until the next Trains Galore event at Special Auction Services.
It’s not long now until the next Trains Galore event at Special Auction Services. Amongst the lots going under then hammer at the popular auction in December will be a famous City of Truro loco which is estimated at £8,000-10,000 and a GWR loco Bradley Manor which is expected to fetch in the region of £6,000-8,000. At the other end of the scale some rare, early Marklin, Treibwagen rail car sets have estimates of £800-1,200 each. The company has also recently taken in an incredibly rare Marklin Gauge I ‘Stephenson’ British-outline clockwork tank locomotive which is estimated at £6,000 - £8,000. By an extraordinary coincidence, SAS also have the 0 Gauge version, which is worth £1,500 to £2,500 – they have never been offered side by side before! The Marklin sets are part of a fine Swiss collection which Special Auction Services has been selling this year and that part of the sale alone should total well over £50,000.
