N Scale Trains

Over the last 30 years I have been collecting N Scale models to run on my Denver's RailRoads layout. Due to time restraints I have "collected" more models than I can "run" and now that the layout looks like one day it will actually be completed, I have found that many of the over 2000 models collected do not fit into the 1950's and 1960's "Denver" theme of the Railroad. 

I have therefore decided to offer these models for sale. Many of them are Micro-Trains models that are now no longer available from hobby shops, There are also a number of Atlas, Athearn and Kato models that are no longer available. In addition I have a collection of models, manufactured by Micro-Trains or Atlas, put out by N Scale Enthusiast (previously N Scale Collector) either as a special run or as a "gift" car for membership or attendance to one of their conventions. These models are very rare and often highly sort after by collectors.

New/Mint/Exceptional Quality: Almost all of these models are brand new, complete with all the correct packaging, without evidence of being altered, and no evidence of item wear from running on any layout. In a few cases there may be slight shelf wear or small pressure cracking of box or lid may be evident.

Very Good to Excellent Quality: A small number of models may demonstrate slight evidence of age including discoloration of Price Sticker, Insert Labels and slight yellowing of box and lid, as well as minor cracks found in the box and lid. In all cases the condition of box and model are noted together with a photograph of each. The price will also be adjusted to take into consideration the condition of the box.

Also on offer are a small number of brand new miscellaneous items, such as track and structures, which are surplus to my requirements and a few second hand models. These are all priced accordingly.

All prices are in Australian dollars and are mostly based on the landed cost of the item when imported from the United States of America or in the case of Peco track & accessories, the United Kingdom. I am not trying to make a profit, only to recover my costs. North American customers should note that the price in US dollars will be considerably cheaper than the AUS dollar price. Often by as much as 30% due to the appreciating US dollar. Our shipping costs are also very low, in fact generally below cost, at a flat rate of $A12 per order within Australia or $US25 per order if shipped to North America, Europe, Asia or New Zealand. No hidden surprises there!
