My (unsponsored) testimonial for Stout Auctions ...

They sold my Rock Island oriented collection of trains plus accessories and control gear in one weekend -- eight pages of inventory listings. They picked up the items, took  pictures, grouped items together, and posted it all on their website.  I received a check promptly thereafter. Their service was convenient, efficient, and honest.

A cautionary note - you'll likely receive about one-third of the value you believe your trains are worth.  Some top-rated trains will attract bidders willing to pay a top price. However, it is inherent in the auction sale environment that potential bidders tend to be bargain hunters seeking a really good deal. That is what it is, so adjust your expectations accordingly.

Carry on, regardless ...

FYI, I just recently estimated someone's collection for when they decided to sell.  As there was nothing i was interested in personally, they contacted TRAINZ, which is in Georgia i think, who paid within $500 of my estimate.  They sent instructions for shipping everything and i believe paid for shipping.
