The late Geoff Brewin's (Comet Models) coaching stock

Recommended Posts

  • RMweb Premium

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the sale of Geoff's personal layout stock. He had a wonderful collection of beautifully built Comet Coaches, all OO gauge but easily converted to EM/P4. 

If you have any interest in this collection of GWR/WR & Midland/ MR stock, please contact 96701 of 'the Parish'.

The proceeds from the sale of Geoff's personal layout collection (not the Comet Models business) will be passed on to Geoff's family at their request. The aim is to maximise the funds raised and therefore the prices of items will reflect this aim.

I would like to thank Andy York for allowing us to post this on RMWeb.

Thank you,

Phil Ramsay

Thank you for all your thoughtful and supportive comments.

It will be a celebration of Geoff's and Alan's (ex Comet Models) skills to have coaches from Geoff's collection running on layouts around the country.

Geoff would have been the first to remind me that the majority of the coaches in this collection were not actually built by him; so thanks Alan and long may you continue to build coaches of such beauty.


I do hope that no one will be disappointed should they want a coach (or two, three or more), however, they are actually going fast. This is truly heartening.

Can I just say that RMWeb has enabled the rather unique disposal of a couple of real gentlemen's collections recently. This is obviously a rather sad operation, but at the same time a wonderful way to allow loads of folk to enjoy something that was lovingly owned by true modellers.

Having overcome the 'inability' to copy, update and return Spreadsheets I shall refer future interest to 96701 unless asked to do otherwise.

Thanks again for all your interest.

Many thanks, Phil R. 

Many thanks to the other Phil.


Please contact me via email at philban2003(at)yahoo.co.uk. It is much easier for me to respond with photographs etc than via pm.


Many thanks,

Phil Bancroft. (From up the road).
