Hi there

I've been left a huge selection of Model Engineer Magazines by my late grandfather dating from the 50's to the early 2000's.

Is there anyone out there who collects them and would take them off my hands? Or can you point me in the right direction to a website who'd be able to help.

Thanks in advance!!

Where abouts are you? I am trying to build up a collection and your early ones would be of interest.

TEE Publishing might be interested.

If you have the patience they can be sold individually or in batches on the well known auction site. Many model engineers are trying to find the specific magazine that contains the article that completes the set for their specific locomotive or similar, and they were not often sequential.

contact your local model engineering club who might want them for their library, or may have a member who wants their own set. Any beginners should be interested in steadily reading through them while watching TV. Great way to learn about the hobby.
