At the Depot, we are always looking for steam locomotives to purchase. Whether it is new or used, battered or broken we would like to take a look. If you are interested in selling either one or a thousand pieces to us, click here and complete our form. It is quick and easy and we will offer you a fair price for your equipment. We also purchase Estate Collections. If you own a Hobby Shop with old inventory that you would like to sell, send us an email TheTrainDepot@hot.rr.com with what you have. We will contact you as soon as we can. We will make an offer on the old-new items from your inventory.
If you are the owner of a closing Hobby Shop, don’t just put your stock up for auction. If you have steam locomotives circa 1950 or before, let us give you a firm price on that inventory. So before you put your models or store stock up for bid on an auction site, contact us first. Don’t forget that auction sites can charge over 10% of the final sales price plus listing fees. With us you are gaining that 10% back.
Also another thing about auction sites, I have watched time and time again that items that are listed as “reserved price” almost NEVER sell, and the “Buy Now” option also has similar results for higher priced items. So save time and money and consider The Train Depot first as a new home for your locomotives.
