    This Model Locomotive by Tower55 sold for $275.70!

    At Auction Bay, one of the most common items we see brought in for consignment are model trains.  Sometimes they are classic Lionel trains, which have great chance of sale.  Other vintage brands like Marx and some of the older Walthers kits can sell well, too.   Rivarossi is another great name which can bring impressive prices.  But some of the biggest sellers are contemporary models, especially the high-quality trains made by Athearn and its competitors!

    We recently sold this model locomotive made by Tower 55, which pulled in the bids and sold for $275.70!  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to train models.  Some of the best-sellers are weathered trains, which have been customized with airbrushing and other paint methods, to look more realistic.  The only ones which don’t seem to have luck are the ones from the late 70’s and 80’s from TYCO or Mantua (which had lower production quality).  If you have some rolling stock gathering dust or some reference books on trains and railroads, or even some old toy trains in a box from years back, bring them in to Auction Bay, and we’ll help you sell them on eBay!
