Nothing against guys wanting to make a little dough, after all the Forum has been very accommodating letting us list and sell on here for absolutely nothing.
Anyway, I see listings every so often with large sums of trains, locos and rolling stock for sale and the seller lists his (or hers, sorry Ladies), items for one LARGE sum of money $1000, $2000 $3000 maybe more. I have been involved with toy trains since 1999 and setting up at shows for as long running, fixing and helping new hobbiests buy from local dealers and helping dealers fix their wares getting them ready for sale. I have seen ONLY ONE time since 1999 when a dealer had one table at a local show just packed full of MPC equipment. At the end of the show sunday, he was picking up and some guy came up and bought up everything he had.
Usually when someone comes up to me and wants to sell everthing in one shot, I steer them to one of the dealers that can buy everything at once, the down side to that for the seller is that a dealer will offer them about half what the book says, and I tell them that up front. Their other alternative is to sell online (such as OGR), but you may be a long time selling piece by piece.
One other such deal, I had a guy come up to me with a Lionel Girls train He wanted to sell. I told him put it on ebay and put a reserve of $1400. He did not want to mess with that and ended up selling to one of the dealers at the show for $800. The dealer is a friend of mine, and he said he turned around and sold the set for $1200. So in the end everybody was happy.
Sell your wares ladies and gentlemen, OGR has been kind to us!! Good luck and Godbless and happy training. Run em fast and furious!!
