Stoneleigh Replacement Auctions 2022

July Railwayana Auction (Online Stoneleigh Replacement) Although our July 2nd auction has been booked and advertised for some considerable time, another auction company has, apparently with full knowledge of our event, booked a sale on the same day. The organisers have told us that they see no problem in having two sales on Saturday 2nd July and although we hoped that they might alter their date, unfortunately this has not happened. We feel that to hold an auction on this day would be wholly unfair to both our buyers and vendors, as well as to the memory of the deceased collector whose railwayana is being sold in this other sale and his beneficiaries. We are unable to bring our auction forward or move to a later date due to other railwayana events and other long-standing commitments booked by our staff. Therefore, we have reluctantly decided to abandon the July sale, moving directly back to our long-established quarterly schedule. Our next online Stoneleigh replacement auction will now be held on Saturday 3rd September, followed by Saturday 3rd December and in 2023 the first Saturday of March, June September and December. As you may have seen from our Preview Gallery, we have a superb selection of items entered and welcome further lots. Please watch the gallery for regular updates.

During 2022, we will be offering a wide selection of photographic material. This includes the Edward Wallis Collection of negatives, primarily GWR and SR constituents, signalling and other infrastructure. We also have a wide range of negatives and slides consigned to us for sale.
