WE WILL NOT BE BEATEN!

With the latest round of new Covid lockdown restrictions, we are pleased to say that the running of our businesses, namely Crewe Heritage Railwayana Auctions and Mid-Hants Railwayana Auctions, remains largely unaffected. We will continue to run our popular regular telephone/email/postal auctions throughout 2021 until further notice and at such time that we can all meet safely again at live venues.

BUYING: Our next Crewe Heritage Auction will be held over the weekend of Friday 25th to Monday 28th June 2021, with viewing online at ukrailwayana.com. For further images or condition reports please contact us in good time before the sale weekend.

You can bid from your own home via email, telephone or postal bid. Please register (preferably before the sale weekend) with us if you are interested in bidding and you will be allocated a Postal Bidding (PB number). Payment for items can be made by sending a cheque or via bank transfer.

SELLING: We are still accepting consignments of collections or single items of your railwayana and transport related memorabilia for this upcoming auction and subsequent auctions in 2021.

COVID SPECIAL OFFER!! We are now offering to sell your STEAM and MODERN TRACTION Locomotive NAMEPLATES AT A SPECIAL RATE OF JUST 5% + VAT until further notice!

COLLECTION: Our regional agents will continue to be able to collect items from you, socially-distanced at your doorstep/drive by prior appointment only under the strictest Covid-19 aware conditions.

DELIVERY: We also offer a safe and secure personal delivery service throughout the UK at a pre-arranged cost after the auction has finished. No expensive couriers or highly-inflated charges! Remember, we are the only railwayana auction house to offer a full collection and delivery service. We are fellow collectors who understand and are sympathetic to the items and understand the business.

STAY SAFE - SUPPORT OUR NHS.
