The nostalgia of a person’s childhood can often result in a very dedicated collector. Our three specialist auctions of Toys, Trains, and Memorabilia held throughout the year offer a large range of collecting areas, with an appeal that spans the generations. The established areas of collecting such as diecast models, construction and military toys, model trains, dolls and bears, and entertainment memorabilia form the core of these auctions. Examples of scale model stationary engines, live steam locomotives, and scratch built models have also been very popular in recent auctions. But the area of biggest growth comes from 1980s action figures, such as Star Wars, superhero models, and early computer games and consoles. The next generation of collectors are reclaiming their childhoods, generating some surprising results in the process.
