My house was broken into on 14th Feb. As well as phones, jewellery and my car key, two model steam engines were taken. They are both brand new in the boxes. Made by Wilesco, they have German writing on the top of the box too. One is red with yellow wheels and one is green with red wheels. I have a picture of one of them but not sure how to Upload it? Very distinctive and absolutely priceless to me. Huge sentimental value as they belong to my late father. Any information of their whereabouts would be greatly appreciated.

Cant help you Im afraid, but you have my sympathies . What a rotten thing to happen. All I can think of regarding the engines is to perhaps contact any enthusiast groups you can find and ask them to watch out for them. Do hope you get them back somehow.

Being burgled is a horrible experience for anyone and I am really sorry for you and your family, it must take a while to get over. On a practical note you could look for your possessions both jewelry and collectibles by trawling through ebay listings and the web sites of outlets like Cash Converters who list all their Sale items on the internet. This might help you recover some of your stuff or help identify the burglars.

Thank you everyone. The more I tidy up, the more I find missing. List stands at Nokia lumia 520, Sony Ericsson Spiro, a Nintendo Ds lite, a Nintendo DS XL, a baby's bangle, four necklaces, a sony cyber shot camera, a Nikon digital camera and my spare car key. :-( can't understand why someone would go into four children's rooms and steal from them :-(

Probably druggies with mashed brains. Can you secure your car in some way?

Yes Venice. It's been towed away by the insurance to get the locks changed and keys recoded. Costing me my excess but better that than stolen completely.

I'm sorry to hear about that, and hope you get your model trains back. Do you mind saying whereabouts the burglary took place?

new ferry
Our model boat club were doing a display at Waterloo Liverpool. Some lad walked in, picked up a Mersey Ferry and walked out! Police found it about 6 months later in a second hand shop. Don't despair, with something as uncommon as your Traction engines,I'm sure they'll surface eventually.
