Steamline Ltd. buys and sells high quality model railway locomotives, coaches and rolling stock in Gauge 'O' and Gauge ‘1’ from our base in Halifax, West Yorkshire. All our models are to Finescale standards and nearly all are electrically powered - mostly DC, but some models are DCC (digital), often including sound, and this is stated in the description. Occasionally we are able to offer Gauge 1 live steam models.
The models we sell come into two categories. Firstly, Steamline owned stock. These tend to be new or very lightly used stock from the major 'ready to run' manufacturers such as Finescale Brass/Sancheng, Golden Age, Tower, L.H.Loveless, Sunset Models, Masterpiece Models, Lionheart Trains, Bachmann etc.
Secondly, we sell a very large amount of models on a commission basis on behalf of Customers and other contacts made over the many years we have been trading. These are often kit/scratch built but not exclusively. Some of our stock comes from modellers who acquired stock over the years always with the intention of building a layout but never quite made it. These models are mostly mint/boxed/unused. Note that we only accept models for commission sales which meet our own exacting standards. Commission sales are handled through our associated company Leigh Ltd.
So to maintain an ongoing good stock of high quality models we are always seeking to acquire further top quality Gauge 'O' and Gauge '1' models by direct purchase (see the 'WANTED' list below) or to sell on a commission basis (based on a fixed percentage of the sale price, no VAT and no additional charges). Note that our website reaches a large audience and we sell internationally.
Our current commission rates (January 2018) are 15% for locomotives and coaches, and 20% for wagons and sundry items.
We are also willing to discuss Exchanges and Part-Exchanges of Gauge 'O' and Gauge '1' Models.
