A TV antiques expert will be valuing railway memorabilia at an event in Broadway.

Paul Atterbury, who is an author and railway historian as well as expert on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow, will be at the ‘Journey Through Steam’ roadshow valuation day on October 1.

The event, organised by Broadway Museum & Art Gallery, in partnership with the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway (GWSR) and GW Railwayana Auctions (GWRA) is to take place at Lifford Hall between 10am and 3pm. 

Visitors are invited to bring steam and diesel era memorabilia along to be valued including railwayana such as locomotive name and works plates, station totems and signage, signalling items, railway posters, paperwork and ephemera, plus any rolling stock or miniature railway related items.

The ‘Journey Through Steam’ exhibition, which has been extended until November 12, resulted in Broadway Museum and the GWSR winning the 2023 ‘Heritage Railway Interpretation Award’.

The award was presented at the Heritage Railway Association Awards ceremony in Birmingham back in March.  

Catherine Johnson, GWSR marketing manager, said: “We are delighted at the GWSR to be working again with The Broadway Museum on this event, but also in conjunction with Paul and GW Railwayana Auctions and a couple of our volunteers.

“It is a further way of developing GWSR in the local area. It will also give people the opportunity to have their loved memorabilia valued.”

Museum director Anona Van Lawick said: “We cannot think of a better way to add to the hugely successful exhibition than to offer our community of railway fans the opportunity to have their own loved memorabilia assessed and valued by Paul.

“These collections are what made our exhibition possible and with the great lengths GWSR are going to, to grow this heritage asset, we are proud to be working with and supporting this important piece of British history.”
