      Not to be confused with Retrotec or Retro Track and Air. A caller to our offices this afternoon was confused, but thought it was one of the latter - which it isn't! (Just posting for the avoidance of any doubt)

                I take it this was a previous sale?

                    God bless telephones.... i just rang them and finishing touches to catalogue are today with it going online later. Or email them and they say they'll email back to interested parties.

                    EDIT: illustrated PDF list now online, thus....

                      Thanks for the link Dave.

                      Not a lot to see - unless you want an Anson across multiple lots. I think I'll leave the car in the garage for a little longer..

                        It's so sad to see someone's livelihood put up for sale and sold off like this, one hopes all those involved with the company are ok..

                          It seems odd to offer mixed selections of a/c parts. Is this standard practice?

                            Are the wings and various other bits from G-AGPG, the one Bill has saved? Would be great if they were and she could be brought back together.

                              Love item 71 - a trolley used in servicing "injector seats" - I bet they are a real pain in the bum.

                                Plenty of Anson parts. Wonder if there are enough parts to build an Avro Anson?
                                The Comet seats may be of interest for the Air France Comet at DH Museum?

                                  Visited there today to collect a lot of stuff a few well known folks collecting their purchases , sadly late on just before I left a local scrap man came to collect his stuff some 20 lots mainly Anson. I told him what it was but like he said he paid little for it and it was going into the pot tomorrow. He was very helpful and we did save some nice pieces to put on show. He did offer to deliver the lot to our museum for a very fair figure But we have not got the room or more spare cash sadly!

                                    Always a shame to hear this, but well done for rescuing a few bits.. even if someone could of purchased the rest and stuck em on ebay at least a few more parts of the faithful old Annie could of been saved.. shame.

                                      Have contacted Bill Read, our Anson restorer and he would be very interested. Varsity, can you contact the scrapman and get him to hold off from the melting pot for a couple of days??
