The Collection of Frederick William Hampson, Dr Ing. Prof. F. W. MPhil, PhD, CChem, CEng. FRSC, FIMechE, FIMMM, EurIng.

The Late Dr Hampson was an avid collector and model maker of steam and other railway locomotives and carriages. He worked mostly in 0-gauge and amassed a collection of hundreds of pieces, now to be auctioned off. Known as ‘The Bishop’, he also owned one of the Bishop’s Castle locomotive nameplates. He was an avid member of Model Railway Societies and The Tanfield Railway.

The Collection includes some commercial pieces, pieces by known model makers, and many pieces made by Dr Hampson himself. We are pleased to bring this collection to market and, as the majority of the collection are kit-built pieces, the paintwork and build quality varies.  We therefore invite all to view the collection in person wherever possible.
