Morning all, I hope you don't mind me asking this.

A steam enthusiast local to me has sadly passed away and his family are selling the entire contents of his workshop in the form of a sealed auction.

There's a rather beautiful Super 7 and a large quantity of tools and material that I have my eye on. However there are also two semi-complete steam locomotives.

Can anyone identify these kits, or does anyone have any idea of their value?

It's incredibly frustrating that this is a sealed auction and all being sold as one lot. I'm hoping that my bid can reflect the value of these kits so I can pass them on to someone who is willing to complete them, and not just weigh them in.

Apologies if this post is in the wrong area of the forum.
