If you have a collection of N, HO, O, or G scale trains and accessories that you need to dispose of, consignment could be a viable option.

Our consignment service allows you to sell your item(s) through us and not have to deal with the hassles of listing online, packing, and shipping. We also by-pass the tedious process of eBay, Facebook, yard and garage sales, and flea markets. In many cases, we can return a better profit margin to you than the other options.

Our consignment service does the following:
  • If you deliver the item(s) to us, it is a 60/40 split (you get the 60)
  • If we pickup the items (central Ohio area only) it is a 50/50 split
  • Tear down and removal of layouts may require an additional fee
  • You can set the price of the item(s), or let us price to market value
  • We inspect, clean when necessary, and display the item(s) in store
  • We list the item(s) on our web site and handle the packing and shipping
  • Because our web site has national reach, you can reach millions of potential customers
  • Because we are a retail business, we can accept a larger variety of payment options than the private individual usually does (MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, etc.)
  • Checks are mailed to all consignors in the month following the month the item(s) are sold
  • A detailed listing is included with your checks so you can see exactly what sold
  • You still own the item(s) and can ask to have unsold item(s) returned to you at anytime. We ask for a 14-day notice so that item(s) can be collected and removed from our computer system
If consignment seems like the right option for you , or you would like more information, give us a call at 740-653-0404 or send us an email to
