PRESS RELEASE............

SOUTH DUBLIN TOY & TRAIN SALE

The Stillorgan Park Hotel, Stillorgan. Dublin. (Main N11 route).

Saturday 8th. December 2012 - 10.30am to 3pm.

 

The very first “feast” for toy & train collectors is taking place on Saturday 8th. December at the top Stillorgan Park Hotel, alongside the Nll route to Wexford, in South Dublin, between 10.30am and 3pm and the show is already fully booked. Traders from all over Ireland plus some from the North and others from the UK are attending this major event and no less than 80 tables will be in operation, offering a massive range of goods, old and new, with a great many bargains on offer.

 

Such names as Dinky, Corgi, Matchbox, EFE, Hornby, Bachmann, Tri-ang, Wrenn, Lima and many, many more will feature and also doll collectors will be catered for as well as model-related books being on offer. Some of the model railway retailers will also be offering the ever-growing ranges of Irish-based models and these days, unlike some years ago, there is a great deal available for the modeller and collector of the Irish model railway and transport scene.

 

This all-new event is planned to be the first of regular shows at this great venue (350 free parking spaces at the rear of the hotel and catering available throughout) and the plans were given fresh impetus recently when the co-organizers of the former Dublin Toyfair at the Clontarf Castle Hotel, announced their retirement and the ending of all of their future events, with immediate effect. As a result, this new venture will now take place three times each year, in order to bridge the gap which has resulted and the next show is scheduled for Sunday 17th. February.

 

Organizer Chris Dyer said this week, “We have high hopes for this completely new Dublin show and it is taking place in a very good area of the city. We have attracted stall-holders who have not been seen at such events for some time and we hope to create a really happy and good atmosphere with the main emphasis on value-for-money”.

Trying a Sunday this time

Speaking to both traders and the general public at the last show they seemed to prefer a Sunday gig rather than a Saturday one

George, my own personal experience is that the show is well worth going to and has improved greatly over the years. Depends what you are looking for, I’ve picked up lots of small unusual items in the second hand bins, especial vehicles and accessories. Lots of new items also, but no cheaper than what you would buy online.

Thanks for the replies George and Dave. I’m new to railway modeling so I look forward to catching the spirit of hobby at the show.

Hi George

Diarmuid of Weirpark Books who will be there, has a lot of Plane kits, he recently purchased a huge collection and there is a great selection. I picked up an X1 at the Bray Train & Model Fair last Sunday off him and there's a few more that I fancy- Plane Spotting at Stillorgan.....
