We at Great Central Railwayana Auctions have established our own in-house despatch department which enables us to post items efficiently and quickly after payment has been received. Our aim is to ensure that our buyers receive their purchases without the hassle of having to deal with a third party. We hope that our buyers will find this a welcome change compared with the many auctions who leave their buyers largely to their own devices once they have parted with their money. Contact us at postage@gcrauctions.co.uk for further information.

Items which can be posted include

  • Locomotive cabsides, smokebox numberplates, worksplates and shedplates
  • Station totems, targets and other enamel signs
  • Signalling instruments and single line staffs, tablets and keys
  • Smaller cast iron signs
  • Transport tickets and all types of paperwork
  • Most other small items

We normally use Royal Mail Special Delivery or Parcelforce 48 as appropriate as we find these to be the most efficient and reliable carriers.

Large, heavy, very long or fragile items are best collected from ourselves (by appointment only please as items have to be retrieved from our secure storage). Direct delivery may be possible at cost in some instances, depending on location. Please enquire by contacting our office at Woodford Halse.
