History of Trains Galore at Special Auction Services - video interview

25edc620-ff0a-4e5a-a55a-8ca48601b583
In the December issue of Collectors Gazette we've got an exclusive interview with Hugo Marsh, toy and train expert at Special Auction Services. Hugo talks us through the history of the annual Trains Galore auction that, as the name would suggest, is a sale dedicated to all things model railway-related. The event has become one of the highlights of the calendar and is very well attended by those looking to buy and also those just wanting to attend a jovial social event.

In the video below Hugo also highlights some of the interesting items in this year's Trains Galore auction, including an unusual barn find and a model from the very dawn of Tri-ang Railways, when it was still known as Rovex. This particular loco, which you can see in the video, has been cited as the Holy Grail for Tri-ang collectors and is already causing a stir aross the collecting community.

For more information about Trains Galore, make sure you pick up the December issue of Collectors Gazette, which goes on sale on 15th November or just order your copy online now and, remember, to get the latest collecting news delivered direct to your inbox every two weeks, just sign up for our e-newsletter.
