Would you let me know what items of Hornby O Gauge railways you have in stock?
I am often in Edinburgh and would come in if you have some.

Kind regards

My son has complete sets of Harry Potter Lego, boxed and in very good condition, from the first 3 films and would like to sell them. Do you buy models like this to sell on, and if not, can you suggest the name/details of someone who does?

Hi there, a german friend of mine living in Edinburgh told me you have some (or more?) viewmaster reels. I’m interested in reels showing german attractions/towns like cologne, bonn, dusseldorf, stuttgart etc., and i’m especially interested in so called personal reels, made from private photographies.

Do you have any of these? I’m paying good prices for some of these in good condition.

Thanks for reply, Uwe
