Clearing out a friend's shed today and came across these old models covered in dust and cobwebs.

 

Well, Sulzer, I'm sure I don't have to tell you what you've got there?

 

Most of it looks only fit for the bin, but the locos will be of interest, if only to guys using the Hornby motors in clockwork locos - as the late Drew Donladson did in those amazing models of his.

 

Have a look at eBay, where there's a lot of wrecks on sale and fetching tens of pounds.

 

Good luck - interesting find.

 

Leslie

Well, I have no idea what it's worth, now or if restored……….. but I wouldn't trash it if you seen Wrenneire hanging around on a corner near you! :-)

Quick search before you get swindled on here :((

This is probably what you have. It worth a few hundred pounds STG if Near mint. Yours probably doesn't qualify for that category (sorry!).

Probably worth checking what else is in that lot in case there's a rare carriage or something but probably not worth much based on condition

PS I have NOOOOO expertise in this area and someone else's opinion on here is probably better

One of the coaches looks to be in middling condition, pity the damp got at the rest.

 

I'd say most of it would be of use to guys looking for spares, or to repaint, but repainted stuff doesn't have anywhere near the value of an untouched example.

I was only giving a hand clearing the shed the owner would definitely not part with this 'junk' as it is of a strong sentimental value to her, her late husband was an avid railway enthusiast, he travelled widely across Ireland and Britain to photograph 'steam' and he must have collected a few model railway items over his lifetime. Unfortunately in this case, the items have been left neglected in the corner of a leaking shed

Would need to be in at least this condition before it would be much use to anyone, methinks?

Who ran this Sealink coach?

 

BR in the 1980s. NIR had a 70 class railcar decked out in similar livery.
