The sale features more than 100 lots of model railway items, anticipated to realise up to £10,000.
Toy specialist Jon Price said: “This sale includes an accumulation of several lifelong collections from local railway enthusiasts.
“It was certainly a fun time cataloguing these lots, which range from cherished childhood items to room-size model railway layouts and garden trains.
