BREAKING NEWS


STAFFORD RAILWAYANA AUCTIONS
TO MOVE TO A NEW LOCATION AT

CREWE HERITAGE CENTRE
VERNON WAY
CREWE
CHESHIRE
CW1 2DB

FIRST AUCTION WILL BE ON THE 8TH FEBRUARY 2020

THE AUCTION WILL BE KNOWN AS

"CREWE HERITAGE RAILWAYANA AUCTIONS"

Neil Booth, Proprietor, Railwayana Auctions UK, said:

"We thank Mike and the trustees at Crewe Heritage Centre for their kind and warm invitation to stage our Two Northern - Based Railwayana Auctions at their venue. We had begun to outgrow our previous school venue in Stafford and this, coupled with inflexibility over access on the set-up days, had meant that we had begun to search for an alternative premises. Their generous invite has come just at the right time for us, and we have received it with open arms and look forward to welcoming collectors old and new to this already well-known location in collecting circles from the New Year onwards."

The invitation letter stated:

Dear Mr Booth,

Further to the invitation extended to you previously by our Trustee Gordon Heddon to use our Exhibition Hall as a suitable venue for your Railwayana Auctions, I am very pleased and delighted to hear that you have accepted our invitation.

My fellow trustees and I warmly welcome you to the Crewe Heritage Centre as the base for your future Auctions.

We know that the Centre will be a popular choice among the "Railwayana Collecting Fraternity" at our central location.

We look forward to working with you from the New Year and beyond to our mutual benefit.

Yours sincerely

Mike Lenz
Manager
Crewe Heritage Centre



Public Announcement from the Director of
Railwayana Auctions Uk Ltd


Neil has heard various tittle-tattle regarding the impending move of the Stafford Railwayana Auction location to the Crewe Heritage Centre.

For the avoidance of doubt, the heritage operation at Crewe relies on extra 'Special Events' to bring in funds from both hiring fees and profits on catering, to support its aims and objectives, with regard to maintaining the site and its wonderful exhibits for all to enjoy.

To fill the 'gaps' in its events calendar following the unfortunate demise of a previous auction house, the chairman and trustees of Crewe Heritage Centre INVITED Stafford Auctions to come to their location and the deal was brokered. Stafford as a location was outgrowing its venue and following restricted access to the school on Friday set-up day, the decision to accept Crewe's kind offer became a no-brainer.

Many have expressed delight at the move, and new consignments are already being offered for our first auction at this location on February 8, 2020 and the subsequent auction on July 4.

"As the Auctioneer I would be delighted to hear from fellow collectors who wish to consign single items or whole collections to these future auctions".

Latest Messages of Thanks
From Satisfied Customers

Good Morning Neil,

Just a quick note of thanks for the unprecedented amount of welcome and advice to your auction yesterday. Rarely have I ever experienced the warmth or depth of welcome and extreme helpfulness of the staff at such an event.

I travelled some 5 hours of car driving in raining conditions to get there, ( and again home), but it was well worth it for the experience and to view the quality of the items on offer.

I am a small private collector, (not a dealer), who was very, very, happy with my 5 purchases at the auction, and your advice and guidance during the auction.

My thanks to all your team, (including the staff who even offered to help carry my heavy GWR Cab sides, out in the rain to my car, and especially Chris in accounts who was cool and accommodating in spite of the customer pressures.

Again all I can say is Thanks, now I must get my treasures up in our house before my wife returns home.

Colin
