WELL CHUFFED

Lancashire Life - - ANTIQUES -

This tin­plate Gauge 1, Midland Rail­way lo­co­mo­tive, ten­der, two car­riages and a wagon by the German toy­maker Märklin was once a trea­sured play­thing that cost its buyer dear when it was new in the

1900s. Some­how, it ended up in a garage, dam­aged, rusty and for­got­ten, un­til Mil­nthorpe-based 1818 Auc­tion­eers were called in to clear the prop­erty. Such finds are few and far be­tween and still valu­able, it sold for £6,500 to a col­lec­tor in Hol­land.
