Consignment and Selling

Model Railroad World has two programs to assist you in the sale of your model trains: Consignment and Selling


Consignment allows you to sell your products without having to pay for rents, overhead, or salaries of employees. It also allows you to reach different locations and markets.

It’s possible to make quite a bit of money consigning, particularly if you are selling more high-end pieces. By selling to individuals outright (through ads in papers, out of your trunk at work, etc.), you may be able to do better, but the work and expense involved often are not worth it.

In consigning your products, you are basically lending your products to Model Railroad World. Model Railroad World displays your wares, posts them online, and includes them in their line of products. If the merchandise sells, Model Railroad World pays you less the agreed percentage and other costs. The percentage share of Model Railroad World ranges from 25 to 50 percent, depending on the quality, scale and the type of merchandise.

Selling Outright

When you sell an item at Model Railroad World, you simply bring in your item for sale. You and Model Railroad World come to an agreement on an amount that we would pay to you. You leave with cash in hand, and you have no further title to the model train collection.
