We hold six regular auctions of Toys for the Collector each year that include model railways from N Gauge to Gauge III and models; in addition, we hold one special themed auction and one Express auction. The season wraps up with the renowned Trains Galore sale in December, a popular and friendly event that has been running since 1985. The finest pieces are held back for this auction, always creating international interest.

With several decades of experience behind them, our specialists have a very extensive knowledge of the toy and train world, having handled some of the finest pieces and collections worth many millions of pounds over the years.

Lots are presented in attractive colour-illustrated catalogues, as well as on our website, with full online bidding facilities. We have a worldwide database of eager buyers in all fields that gives us a great opportunity to obtain the best possible price for your collection.

For more information, please contact our toy specialists Hugo Marsh, or Bob Leggett, who look forward to hearing from you.

The 2013 Trains Galore auction was been dedicated to Tom Rose who started Trains Galore in 1986 at Christie's and will be sadly missed...
