The Transport Sale | Tuesday 24 September 2019 | Browse the catalogue
Dreweatts' September Transport Sale leads with The Collection of the late Mr Fred Sansome (lots 1 - 83).
Fred Sansome was a keen railway enthusiast and was well known in the Midlands for collecting Gauge 1 locomotives. Not only did he collect these wonderful engineering masterpieces for his own pleasure but, realising his hobby was of interest to others, he began selling model railway items from his grocer’s shop Sansomes in the Warwickshire village of Grendon, and then from the many Barry Potter run railway shows all over the Midlands.
