Certainly a couple of ex LNER bogied 45 tonner.
Not all ga's; mainly detail extracts.
About a dozen paper drawings which have been folded. £30 being asked for each.

From time to time some interesting drawings do turn up, but sadly more often than not at exorbitant prices.

I will usually 'watch' these items but no-one actually seems to buy them at the £30 per sheet mark.

I wonder if it would be worth asking the seller if they would donate the drawing to the BDCA if they did not sell, I appreciate that we would need an archivist to look after any drawing that we recived and wondered if this was worth considering.

I did try that once and received very short shrift!

Sadly anyone who thinks that one sheet is worth £30+ is likely to be so money-focussed that they are highly unlikely to give anything away. If they were genuinely interested in selling at a fair, market-driven price, they'd sell by auction not by "buy it now".
