This week we were shocked when one of our members presented a case full of continental rolling stock that was destined for the tip. The stock consisting of HO and HOe 3.5mm scale models has an estimated value of more than over £250, with some of the models being rather rare.
If the items had not been saved, they would have been virtually destroyed, encased in vast quantities of dirty nappies and Victoria Beckham's latest autobiography. We can only imagine what models have been overlooked and tossed into landfill in the past.
I think I speak for everyone in saying that we are pleased that these models will be going to a new home, where they can be enjoyed and appreciated for many years again.
