Retirement, Clearing out and the future

We are at last feeling retired and are adjusting to our new life style. I have made progress with some 7mm modelling, but am now turning my attention to clearing out surplus items of a railway nature.

There will soon be a complete list of BOOKS for sale - this will include all my MR/LMS reference books and others on Narrow Gauge, Pullmans, etc, etc. If you think you might be interested in any, please send an e-mail and I'll send a list as soon as it is ready for circulation.

There will also be a list of former DISPLAY MODELS from our Branchlines days. These cover mainly 4mm scale, standard and narrow gauge, steam diesel and electric.

Additionally we have a cupboard of 4mm SCALE MODELS bought as useful for possible future products or from my modelling past. A list will be produced.

We expect to advertise these lists in the RAILWAY MODELLER small ad's, rather than on eBay.

Branchlines Sold = Retirement!

The sale of Branchlines to Brian and Isabel Osborne of Westbury was completed on 30th May and they took away all stock on the same day. Catherine and I no longer have any involvement in the business apart from giving telephone and e-mail support to Brian and Isabel until 30th November 2008. We wish them well and hope you will all support them in their new venture. Their contact details are available on the Branchlines Blog and has been published in the main model railway magazines and via the specialist societies.
Now I can do some modelling, restore my old motorbikes, decorate the house, grow more vegetables.........
