For auction military railway models

Discussion in 'Charity Auctions' started by DB216LOKDVR, Jan 2, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:


    For auction; (IN ONE JOB LOT), A COLLECTION OF HO/00 MODEL RAILWAY ITEMS, (to demostrate tank loading at military sidings).


    1 X HO/OO (1:87/1:72/1:76 ISH) scale model of a 0-6-0 DREWY shunt engine (static for display purpose only), painted up to be represented as a DEUTZ 360 (V36) or similar locomotive in Military Service in the early 1980's.

    1 X HO/OO model of a Warflat (static for display purpose only).

    1 X HO/OO model of a Airfix Chieftain tank (static for display purpose only).

    3 X Triang R11O Flatbed waggons (ideal as static displays).

    1 X NOT ASSEMBLED HO/00 Model kit of BR 0-4-0 Steam Saddle Tank Locomotive (PUG) (A DAPOL PRODUCT), packet has been opened but all parts are present including transfers.


    30 ish track side figures on struts and a few painted up/converted as Military Railwaymen.

    Items purchased and made up in the early 1980's.


    Due to the age of the items they are auctioned off as non runners and only suitable for static displays.

    All items purchased by me in the early 1980's and not 'borrowed' from any Military Railway Squadron Training Wing.

    No bids on this lovely auction?

    I'm sure if people are waiting for payday, we can hammer the auction down and wait for you to pay until whatever day you're paid this month.

    Thanks for your bid, AP. Hope the child in you will like them. :)

    And it looks to me like a GS blanket indeed.
  9. Just under 3 hours to go.

    Thank you for the bids so far, please note I am paying the postage.

    The 0-6-0 shunter is the kit build Dapol unmotorised model but can be motorised by a skilled modeller by removing the wheels sets etc below the sole bar.

    The table covering is a sheet of black cotton drill waiting to be machined in to a drill rugby training top. Used as the models did not stand out on a plain white table cloth. No army blankets in my house!!! (they are nicely folded and stacket in the garage with my reserve kit and my 1958 webbing).
