Welcome to SuffolkSteam. I’m Andrew Grace. I’ve worked in Suffolk as a Chartered Engineer for 30 years. During that time I’ve established my own live steam railway – Rushmere Railway – and raised thousands of pounds for charity by taking my ride-on-railway to village fetes and shows throughout the County.

Originally serving Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire I have now expanded to provide nationwide coverage. Based on my extensive experience if you send me photos of your workshop or model that you are selling, I can provide you with an accurate valuation usually within 24 hours. If required, I can arrange to inspect your model or workshop in person. I am happy to provide a written offer, with details of how I have arrived at my valuation, so that you can take time to consider the sale.

Please do contact me me today if you are looking for a good price for your model or workshop.
