News & Events for Mike Delaney

November/December 2017

Hornby 0 Gauge: some very nice items purchased in the llast 6 weeks including a cracking boxed Princess Elizabeth which quickly found a new home, a rare post war 501 in LMS and a number of other items. Good selection of Coaches and Wagons so something for all.

Bassett Lowke: A BR Live Steam Mogul in used but good/plus condition.

Rare E120 Special LNER Black Tank Loco No.2586 - 20 volt electric

Gauge 1: I have sold a number of items this month, there certainly seems a resurgence in Gauge 1 items but again nothing to add this month, very little available out there at the moment, but as always we keep trying.

General note:

Don’t forget if you are in or around the Reading area there is a fantastic Hornby monthly meeting at Mortimer near Reading. Includes running facilities in 0 and Dublo Gauge every second Wednesday each month starting at 5.00 pm.

The Bassett Lowke meetings are at the Cowper Arms Digswell AL6 0EA so keep your eyes open for the next event. Bring along your Bassett Lowke/Leeds/Milbro and other Vintage Loco’s and give them a run.

Don't forget if you are looking for something in particular let us know we may have it in stock.

I am always looking for nice items to add to my updates so if you have something to sell single item or a whole collection give me a ring.


Rising Postal Rates

Lastly as you may be aware Postal rates via the Post Office/Royal Mail have increased so the prices quoted are now out of date and I will try to update the rates as soon as possible. So apologies for the site not being up to date.


We attend a number of general and vintage Toy Fairs around the country. We have listed a number above and add shows regularly.

If you are intending to travel a long distance to meet me at these shows please phone before to ensure there are no changes to the dates and venues.
