Richard Winterton said: “This is an absolute treasure trove for railway buffs in general and those with an interest in Lichfield’s rail history in particular.

“There’s a wide selection of items large and small which range from collectables suitable for sitting on a shelf to signage to set off a model railway to items which would make a superb talking point in a garden.”
