This was posted on facebook today, and I'd like the Railpage community to help if you can.

This was from a friend on facebook :
===================================================

Sometime between the hours of 18:00 Sunday night the 08-09-2019 and 09:00 Monday morning the 09-09-2019, my double garage/man cave was broken into, resulting in many tools, cherished and valuable items go missing, including different railway memorabilia which I have collected over many years. Unfortunately, due to the high on going cost of insurance, there was no insurance to cover the items, so I’m devastated.
Entry was forced through one of the two roller doors, backing on to the back lane in my St, and because of the nature of the items that have been stolen, it looks to be a targeted attack????

Obviously I have spoke to the police and investigations are continuing.

So,.....I send a shout out to everyone, especially my fellow Railway comrades and collectors, could You please be on the look out on any social media pages, eBay, gumtree, private collectors etc, for any of the following more unique and valued items:

*Any C class Locomotive memorabilia. (Except for HO scale locomotive models.)
*5 inch gauge 1/12th scale “C” class V/Line liveried “Live” locomotives.
*Clyde Engineering oval makers plates, with model/serial numbers from 76-825 to 77-833.
*C class cab side number plates, C504, C502, C507.
*Copy/replica C501 plates.
*5 chime Leslie Supertyfon S5t Horns x 2.
*Any ATN Access/Australian Transport Network memorabilia.
*Light blue and yellow Locomotive front headlight assembly with globes.
*C class “back lighted” front and rear number boards.
*HSV (Holden Special Vehicle) tool chest and socket sets.
*Lincoln Air compressor, 50 litre V twin, light blue in colour.

If You see any of these items arise and You are not sure of the ownership etc, could you please contact Junee Police on 0269241144 or myself directly on 0459760276, where the item can be checked against the full list of items on mine or the police data base.

Thanks Guys.

Remember  it is not me.

I have seen this loco and sort of know the owner, a nice guy. Serious posts only (warning) - I  quite annoyed at this terrible news. No need to  say what we think of them, spread the word ! every club, be it model or miniature, or a tourist railway. any place/person you know who likes railway collectables should be told - these items are only worth it to be sold. We need to warn any off from gettin these item - and to report any approach to the police.

Sincerely,
David Head

That's so unfair for some b a s t a r d low-life to break into your man-cave and steal from you, David or anyone else for that matter! These halfwit druggo's need to have their fingers cut off

But unfortunately we can't do nothing to them! I really hope that you get your belongings back, David
I will keep on a lookout if I do stumble across anything, I will let you know as I live in Wagga

Junee is a railway town so chances being a person from the industry who knew the value of the items ?

Not only model trains are stolen, but tools too! Druggies will go for anything they think and know that they can make money from and get their fix!

The tools they would sell off to places like Cashies and Cash Converters in Wagga Wagga since Junee doesn't have either shops, they would come to Wagga Wagga it's closer to Junee! If not, they would go to Albury! Just to get rid of what they can and fast to get their fix!

I would highly doubt that the person or persons involved are within the industry, they make good money! It would be druggies doing it! Junee isn't a innocent town, criminals are left right and centre just like in any town or city

All I hope is that He gets his belongings returned to him safely and these mongrels dealt with!
