Very simple all went well
Having had a model railway for well over 50 years and added to in the 1980’s, and never being set up for well over 20 years I decided to sell it. Hattons quickly valued my list (with photos) and, upon receipt (they paid for the delivery) and checking it paid the money into my account. A pleasure to do business with them. i can recommend them.
Hattons is a great place to sell and a great place to buy, all things model railways.
