The 69 lot collection largely comprises of Bassett Lowke locomotives, rolling-stock and trackside accessories collected by model railway enthuisiast John Granger.

Highlights of the collection include a 3-rail electric 4-6-2 locomotive No 46232 'Duchess of Montrose' by Bassett Lowke (SC18/747) and a 3-rail electric 4-4-2 tank locomotive No 9 in Midland & Great Northern (MGNR) mustard livery, which is believed to have been part of Bassett Lowke's last special order in 1964 (SC18/752).
