Secondhand Sales @ All Day Steam-up

Posted by Dudley on 26 September, 2016 at 15:05 Comments comments (0)

Bring your unwanted railway paraphernalia along for us to sell at the All Day Steam-up. The link to the seller's form is at the foot of the All Day Steam-up section on our Homepage.


If, as we hope, you're a member of the Association of 16mm Narrow Gauge Modellers you'll have a three or four figure membership number. This can be used to identify you both on your completed form and on the labels you attached to your sale items or 'lots'. If for example your number is 1234 and you have five items/ lots to sell the tickets would read 1234/1, 1234/2, 1234/3, 1234/4 and you can probably guess the last one!


A 'lot' may comprise one item or a small collection of items; for example a single coach/ wagon or a rake of coaches/ wagons - the choice is yours.


We accept railway items in all scales; live steam to electric, including books, photographs, railwayana, some magazines, tools and accessories. No general 'tat' please.


If you are not a member of the Association fill out your form(s), price your tickets and when you bring them to the show we'll assign you a special number for non- members.


Please print the sellers form double sided, ie Page 1 with Page 2 on the back as many times as you need. Alternatively, hard copies can be sent by post. Each item needs a label attached, on one side being the price, on the other the lot no. as above. The commission is 7.5% to our East Surrey Group. However, for a small number of items, you may wish to leave the listing/labelling until you arrive, labels can be provided. Advice can be given on pricing and also, in case of need, items can be collected from your home address and other assistance given. We are also able to sell items on behalf of widows/ deceased members. Please contact us via this website or email Tim below, if we can help.

Club activities

Posted by Dudley on 11 February, 2016 at 17:00 Comments comments (0)

Richmond Light Railway, Kent

As well as garden meetings, where members gather to run trains and drink tea, we try to organise trips to local railways of interest. As such we're hoping to visit the Richmond Light Railway, a 2' gauge line in Kent, during Spring 2016. Specific details will be circulated at club and in the Oily Rag nearer the time.

8TH JAN 2016: We’ve had a reply from the owner, Jeremy Martin and - although he is still keen for us to visit - it's not convenient this year (2016) as there is a lot going on. 2017 should be fine, he states.

Replacement Test-Track

16th Jan 2016:

Julian tells me that we have now had full deliveries of all track (Peco SM32) and pointwork (dual-gauge/ Marcway) for our new test-track.

The baseboard plans are currently with Chris Moody www.model-railway-baseboards.co.uk awaiting completion of order.
