For several decades, Pierce was a very well-known and well-liked feature of the vintage toy and train collecting world. He had numerous friends in the hobby, both in his original homeland in the USA and over here in his adoptive country. His move here was entirely our gain, as we all had the regular pleasure of enjoying his wisdom, his knowledge, his kindness, his skill as a raconteur, and, above all, his wit. All who knew him will remember the way that he leant forward slightly, often seeming to peer beadily just under the top rim of his glasses, preparatory to releasing a few pertinent, pithy and amusing ‘bons mots’.

Fortunately, Pierce was not one to keep his knowledge to himself: in 1986 Victor Gollancz published Pierce’s excellent book ‘Toy Trains – A History’ and no railway book collection is complete without it. I have particular reason to be grateful to him, as we worked together on a book in 2001 and he cast an avuncular eye over my meandering prose.

When Pierce dispersed part of his original vintage toy and train collection a decade ago, he was left in a situation that chills the blood of the dedicated (or incurable) collector: empty display cabinets. Thus, at full tilt, he filled them with some of the models offered in this auction, with more similar auctions to follow in 2023, as well his large and impressive collection of Bassett-Lowke and other waterline models. The world is a duller place without him.
