Due to the Corona outbreak it is more than likely that meetings, auctions and fairs which were planned for the coming weeks will be cancelled.

On the bright side: because of the extra time we now all have, it is a great opportunity to run our trains or revive old projects: dust off and clean locomotives and rolling stock, finish (or start) restorations and make adjustments to our lay-outs.


Wallis and Wallis Auctions

Wallis and Wallis started a series of auctions in East Sussex after the Second World War, but began to specialise in Arms and Militaria when Roy Butler became a partner, finally taking over the business in the early 1960's. Roy's son, Glenn joined the company in the mid 1980's, using his enthusiasm and deep knowledge of toys to bring a new specialisation to the business for toy auctions.
