I have received the following:
Dear Secretary to the Bristol Society of Model Engineers
I am writing as the daughter of a former member of the Bristol Society of Model Engineers (whose trains were often in use at Ashton Court) in the hope that you might be able to offer me some advice.
My father sadly passed away just over a year ago and my mother has asked me to find a buyer for the two 3.5 inch gauge steam locomotives (one is finished and one is part complete) that remained in dad’s possession. I am wondering therefore whether anyone at the BSME might be in a position to provide an idea of their value or failing that whether an alternative source of valuation could be suggested. I am attaching some photos (complete with dust I am afraid – I can only assume my brother didn’t want to disturb the engines when he took the pictures) to give you an idea of what I am talking about.
Many thanks for your time.
