Two very dear friends of mine became enthusiastic collectors of Toy and Model Trains several years ago. They built a large tinplate layout with both O gauge and Standard gauge loops, lots of MTH Tinplate Classics reproduction locomotives and trains, quite a bit original Lionel tinplate trains, and lots of accessories both original and reproduction.
They also built smaller HO and N layouts, and the wife amassed a fairly large collection of new HO and N scale locos and cars.
They now are looking to thin out the collections, as the time for them to downsize their living arrangements is in the foreseeable future. I've agreed to help by posting items they would like to sell here. Prices listed are our best estimate of value based on the original price they paid, value guides, and eBay sales. They are open to offers which I will pass on to them.
All of these items will eventually be offered on eBay, but most will be listed here first at least for a while. I'm just getting started posting, so if you are interested in any of these trains check back from time to time. If you want me to put you on a mailing list and notify you when I post something, please email me.
I'm trying to make this site look professional, but neither I nor my friends are dealers. They just need to sell some of their collection, and I'm trying to help in my spare time.
