Items not Suitable for our Model Train Auctions
We want to assure potential buyers that we share their passion and have the quality of their collections in mind. To make sure our dedicated model train auctions remain exciting for collectors we avoid railways curio, clockwork or battery operated toy and decorative trains. Common material in reasonable condition or items such as metal transformers are not considered premium quality and therefore not suitable for auction. Additionally, damaged material in reasonable condition (or worse), or with major parts missing or lots in poor condition (exceptions can be made for '40/'50 material), are not considered premium quality.
