GW Railwayana Auctions (GWRA) are a privately owned limited company formed 27 years ago by two enthusiastic collectors of Railwayana, through focusing our business experience, IT & Communication skills and in-depth knowledge of the wider aspects of the railway collecting arena, we rapidly became the world-wide leading specialist auctioneers of transport related memorabilia and are now the longest serving specialist auction house in this field.
We hold three major sales annually in March, July and November and these invariably attract 750 lots, generating over 1000 live bidders and more via post and the telephone, we also hold our popular “Buy & Go” auctions which attract between 600 – 1000 lower value lots and, this enables us to offer a full Turn Key estate disposal service.
Our customers enjoy targeted publicity for items entered into our sales via social media, the live bidding platform of easyliveauction.com, railway periodicals and the antiques trade arena, we distribute 2000 + free hard copy catalogues for our Major sales with every lot illustrated in colour, and pdf catalogues for our “Buy & Go” sales.
All auctions are featured on our modern website and GWRA are the only specialist Railwayana auction house that broadcasts the sale live on the internet via Easyliveauction.com and GWRA Live Bid and provide free colour illustrated catalouges.
We are currently working with London North Eastern Railway, D.B Cargo UK and Great Western Railway with disposing of some of their Nameplates and Worksplates and have worked in the past with Railway Children, HSBC leasing, Freightliner Group, Chiltern Railways, The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust and North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
