Oldham model train collection fetches £231k at auction

A collection of 4,000 model trains has fetched £231,000 at auction for charity.

Late solicitor and councillor Antony Adler from Oldham left instructions to sell off his prized collection, which includes rare pieces from all over the world including America, Italy and Switzerland.

It was 35 years in the making and so vast he had a separate house to accommodate it.

Auctioneers Wright Marshall Fine Arts said it does not know which charity would benefit from the sale.
