I wondered whether to go along ... put off because of:

a) Rail replacement buses to Pershore that seem to take an incredible amount of time (let's attract rail enthusiast types by making it impossible for them to get there by train? )

b) No "must have" lots for me (yes, I have had a quick look through)

c) I have spent far too much in auctions ...

Auction results:
https://www.gwra.co.uk/auctions/hierarchy/55/November-2018.html

The HST nameplates varied in price from £750 (lot 238 "Peninsular Medical School") to £3,200 (lot 397 "Glorious Devon"). "Michael Eavis", lot 353 went for £1,950; wonder if it was bought by Michael Eavis..?!  Cheesy

The highest price paid, unsurprisingly, was a Flying Scotsman nameplate (lot 280), which sold for £64,500.

I have been under the impression that individuals/organisations after which a locomotive is named is also presented with a copy of the nameplate adorning the motive power so if Micheal bought it he must be collecting them.

You really shouldn’t post these - I could get so carried away.

It was bad enough when Collectors Corner was open near Euston.

I know what you mean;  called into Collector’s Corner many years ago and came out with the enamel running-in sign for Oxenholme(£5).
I had forgotten I was meeting a friend at Marylebone station bar, fun at rush hour. Then the long walk to Paddington, as no taxi would take it; an HST trip to Castle Cary and on to Maiden Newton. Arm aching so left it overnight in the signal box.
Mind you it was a good investment as it sold a few months ago for around £200

Way back in the early 80's, I was chatting to a member of the station staff at Exeter Central, who led me to a stack of old SR totems from the station and asked if I'd like one as they were being disposed of. Naturally, I took up the offer. Sadly, I no longer have it as it was passed on to a friend who has an extensive collection.



As it happens, I was on one of my regular visits to Collectors Corner, shortly before it closed and noticed a similar totem (not the same one, as my friend still has my original) on sale for £25. I suspect it would sell for signifiantly more these days

Many thanks for that link Graham. A couple of interesting lots originally from Westbury with the totem station sign and the aluminium white horse depot plaque.
