Auctioneers begun to liquidate the former Canberra Railway Museum during heated scenes on Wednesday despite efforts to halt the sales.

The museum closed in November after its freight company – started to subsidise popular but expensive heritage train trips – collapsed, leaving more than $700,000 in debt.

Around 100 people gathered at the Kingston site to buy scrap metal, old carriages, memorabilia or to see the trains up close.
