TTRCA member Richard Evans has very
generously donated his secondary Trix collection to the Association. It
is his particular wish that it be shared amongst as many members as
possible, and in particular that the rarer items be acquired by those
who have so far not had a previous opportunity to own similar models.
The items are listed in a bidding form, enclosed with the March 2018
Gazette. Items will be allocated to members through a Fixed Price
bidding scheme, the detail of which is also on the form.
The collection is large, and the process
of allocation is therefore complex, both to ensure Richardís wishes are
preserved, and to give all members an opportunity of acquiring part of
the collection at a moderate price. 100% of the proceeds will go to the
Association. Please therefore read the instructions very carefully,
complete the bidding form, and then send it, preferably scanned and
emailed, or posted. All bidding forms must be received by the closing
date (Saturday 17th March) and all will be treated equally, but if you
can send in your bids earlier, this will facilitate completion of the
allocation in time for the Middleton Cheney get-together. Do not send
any payment: this will be arranged subsequent to the bidding process.
When studying the photos please take note
of the written descriptions on the bidding form (such as whether
repainted, re-transferred, etc.). Meanwhile, happy bidding. Click on
