THERE is plenty on offer for collectors of toys and railwayana in the next Kendal sale by 1818 Auctioneers.

It carries an estimate of £200 to £250 in next week’s two-day sale.
Other railway items include a range of signal equipment and a live steam model of Stephenson’s Rocket with an estimate of £150 to £200.
There is a large group of modern Corgi diecast commercial vehicles and advertising wagons which should make up to £1,000.
More traditional antiques include a silver teapot hallmarked at London in 1809 at £500 to £800 and a silver chalice from London 1926 which is being sold together with a plated claret jug with an estimate of £300 to £400.
An album of picture postcards featuring views of Ulverston and Blackpool is rated at £30 to £40.
The sale also includes a set of brass pharmacy scales and a volume of prescriptions dating back to 1823 from the R Moorhouse chemist shop in Wildman Street, Kendal.
