The estate sales list

December 10th, 2017


New estate description and status

The majority of the locomotives, rolling stock and accessories have never been used - many are still in sealed packages. The same is true for the majority of road vehicles, tools, accessories and other components. There is a large quantity of other materials that are also unused and a large quantity of buildings that have been assembled from kits. I have catalogued everything including the structures that have been assembled from kits and these are now shown in the structures list. At the present time there are about 1200 remaining items listed below.

Although the entire collection will be of prime interest to those who model North American in HO there are a considerable number of items that will appeal to those who model in other scales and other countries. As the quantity of items is very large the set of lists below, which are devoted to this one estate, will remain here until January 2018. At that time they will be integrated into the other lists of estate items further down the page that you are also encouraged to review.

Unless otherwise stated all items are in good condition and, in the case of locomotives, in good running condition. Locomotives are also checked before shipping. Those items with a letter B at the end of the description are in their original boxes. All prices are shown in Canadian $. Postage, packing and insurance is extra at cost.


Payment can be made in cash or by Canadian cheques or Canadian money orders, US cheques or US international money orders, bank drafts and . In the case of the latter you do not need to be a PayPal member as you can pay through PayPal with most credit cards at no additional cost.

You can avoid postage charges by collecting prepaid purchases from my home in Ottawa. (6 Trevor Crescent, Nepean in Lynwood Village, Bells Corners; phone number: 613-829-1377). From time to time arrangements can be made to drop items off prepaid purchases in Toronto, the Orillia/Barrie/Midland area, and, less frequently, Victoria (BC).

If you see items that you wish to purchase then please contact me, Dave Venables .

Please provide the item numbers so that they can be set aside for you and payment and delivery arrangments established. I would be pleased to provide additional information on any item to help with your purchasing decisions. You can also contact me to arrange to view items at a mutually agreeable time.

Most of the items in this list are from one estate. Most are in mint or near mint condition in their original box. Some of the collectibles were displayed in enclosed glass cases but have not been otherwise handled. They are organised into four lists: 1:100 and smaller (typically Z, N and TT gauge); 1:87 (HO gauge) and 1:76 (OO gauge);1:64 (S gauge) 1:50 and 1:43 (O gauge); 1:24 (typically G gauge), unknown or variable (as in the case of Matchbox).
