News & Events for Mike Delaney

September/October 2017

Hornby 0 Gauge: This month only a small number of items to add to the update includes LMS LST1/20 the first 20 volt electric locomotives using the French 20 volt mech issued in 1934, I have also listed a rare SR version with the number E29 again this was issue for 1934 only and lastly a Rare E120 Special LNER black Tank Loco, these black electric locos were special order only from 1936.

Bassett Lowke: nothing to add here I am afraid but watch this space.

Rare E120 Special LNER Black Tank Loco No.2586 - 20 volt electric

Gauge 1: I am afraid nothing to add this month.

General note:
Don’t forget if you are in or around the Reading area there is a fantastic Hornby monthly meeting at Mortimer near Reading. Includes running facilities in 0 and Dublo Gauge every second Wednesday each month starting at 5.00 pm.

The Bassett Lowke meetings have changed to the Cowper Arms Digswell AL6 0EA so keep your eyes open for the next event. Bring along your Bassett Lowke/Leeds/Milbro and other Vintage Loco’s and give them a run.

Don't forget if you are looking for something in particular let us know we may have it in stock.

I am always looking for nice items to add to my updates so if you have something to sell single item or a whole collection give me a ring.


Rising Postal Rates

Lastly as you may be aware Postal rates via the Post Office/Royal Mail have increased so the prices quoted are now out of date and I will try to update the rates as soon as possible. So apologies for the site not being up to date.


We attend a number of general and vintage Toy Fairs around the country. We have listed a number above and add shows regularly.

If you are intending to travel a long distance to meet me at these shows please phone before to ensure there are no changes to the dates and venues.
