We are always interested in selling good quality old trains, catalogues and train related items through the TrainXchange web page on Consignment. As a first step, you should prepare a written inventory of your trains including item descriptions and Manufacturer's number [most engines and cars have numbers on them and can be further identified by their colors and roadname]. You can email your inventory to us at Sell@TrainXchange.com or fax it to us at (713) 528-3350. Be sure and include your telephone number so that we can contact you about your trains as soon as we review your list.
Existing Consignors Note: We have set up a dedicated mailbox to facilitate communications with our existing consignors. The e-mail address is Consignment@TrainXchange.com.
Shipping your Trains by UPS ground: Each item should be packed in its original box if it's available. [If the original box contained a liner[s] that's missing, wrap the item with a layer of tissue paper surrounded by bubble wrap before inserting it in its box. It must be snug enough that it doesn't rattle around inside the box but not so over-wrapped that it tears the box apart.] Items without original boxes should be wrapped in a layer of tissue paper with bubble wrap or thick newspaper wrapped tightly around it and taped. Paper items, such as catalogues and instruction sheets, should be "sandwiched" between two pieces of cardboard [such as tablet backs] which are large enough to fully enclose them.
