Looking for locos, I came across this. At first it appears to be a Mamod kit. But there's loads more including LGB spares and wheels, lots of wheels!

Mamod + job lot

The wheels alone are probably worth the £250 - the trouble is that the bundle is too ecclectic, would probably sell more easily of broken up :nod::nod:

I'd be interested in the REA gearbox, but not much else :shake::shake::shake:

The green horizontal engine in the last photo might be a Stuart Turner or similar.
Looking at the yellow boiler in the 5th picture, Rocket comes to mind.

Amongst the pile of assorted wheels are two g scale LGB? motors and they look new. They cost about £40 or more to buy.
This seller obviously doesn't realise the value of what is on offer.

On my watch list. Not much I want but looks like there could be a market for the rest if only to justify the expenditure.

If it's Rocket, it may not be G scale, although thinking aloud, Hornby's Rocket on 3.5" gauge was a steamer.

Yep, If you split it up into appropriate lots - Mamod, G scale, live steam, model engineering etc. You would double your money easily.
I wonder what those two black lumpy things are in the last picture. Anyone know?

I think they may be domestic boiler gas control valves?
The connections on the 'pipes' look more like thermocouple ends to me?? - Pretty ancient, if they are.

I would only have use for a few bits Eric and despite some of my acquaintances considering me a mercenary git would only be looking to recover my initial outlay. If my bits cost me nothing that would be enough and I would be happy for others to have the chance of a bargain.

What you see are the gas supply pipes to the valve which is fitted to the boiler, the white plastic cylinder is the gas tank which would sit inside the water barrel on the tender,
the pipe is fitted to the tender. To fill the gas tank unscrew the tank from the tender fill with gas then re screw it back where it came from, then you turn the knob on the boiler and light the gas underneath the boiler it has an open bottom the gas jet then goes through the boiler like any other centre flue boiler and exhausts up the chimney .

I bought a job lot of stuff last week at a local auction and that contained a large quantity of O gauge wheels. Something to sort and get ready to move on, a job for a rainy day in the future.

I think someone's going to get quite the bargain with this. If I lived in the UK I might be fighting it out with Ebay Mike! - Phil S.

Most of it will be beyond my knowledge of what it is, and will have no use for it..
LGB spares are useful to me, and I like the idea of a stationery engine. - Even if I only ran it on air..

Unfortunately, my Father passed away, before I could get 'into' using the Myford. - I must clean that up, and move it on..

I will pass on this one. Though will watch with interest..

Sold for £277.77, but not to me. I did try and contact seller re costs of shipping - but got no reply.

You're a disappointment to me - I was keen to have a look at that REA gearbox. The blue and yellow dismal stripped its gears yet again.

Nil desperandum - I have seen a Slater's gearbox on evilbay going in 5 days' time (when I won't be at home to bid on it at the last minute :swear: )

Have 2 sets of these REA Grearbox as shown in pic below, look to be for the Rogers Loco with 51mm over Flange Sized Drivers.

I reckon with the wheels £60 would be a fair price with free postage?

Jon, thanks, I'll bear that in mind. I think the Slater's box would be a little bit easier, although I'd still have to deal with the axle size of 3/16" but failing that, I may have to be tempted :emo::emo:
