Vintage Train Sets & Live Steam Models Auctions

Model railways have captured the imagination of boys since the middle of the 19th Century, and train sets still thrill boys of all ages. Whatever your age or gauge, Fieldings can advise you. We regularly hold sales to include vintage train sets, locomotives, coaches, rolling stock and accessories from popular manufacturers such as Hornby, Bachmann, Dapol, Wrenn, Bassett-Lowke and many more. We also deal with and offer collections of live steam models for sale. Read more
