Shipping - Shipping is $12.00 per order - insurance included (to US addresses), ($15.00 to Canada up to 1 kg, $26 up to 2 kg, $36 uo to 4 kg, $56 over 4 kg), more elsewhere, depending on cost).  Your quantity discount will be in the shipping - buy several pieces and we pay anything over the basic rate.  Orders over $1000 shipping is free within North America, 50% actual cost worldwide.  To avoid delay please order by stock number, when shown.

We are located in Santa Rosa, California  Anyone near to here or passing through would be welcomed to pick up their items (by appointment) so as to save the shipping charge.  Unfortunately, we have no showroom - all our stock is wrapped and in storage (for its protection).



Our Customer Comments

Visa and M/C, Zelle,Paypal, as well as checks and money orders, accepted.

                                                                                                                     


Packing - We pack for success, not excuses.  We love old railroad china and relics as much as you do, so we would rather spend a bit more on packing materials (actually, we prefer to use clean recycled packing materials) than see a piece broken in transit.

Our success is collectors getting pieces they want, and only that.  Therefore, all sales are allowed a three day inspection period, within which time, unsatisfactory items may be returned for refund.

Trade / Sell - Perhaps you would like to suggest a trade ?   Unlike an Old World vegetable grocer, we do not care to haggle over the price of each piece, but if you think that you could suggest a trade, or other "deal," that would be mutually beneficial, we will be happy to hear you out.   Maybe you have a piece that doesn't exactly fit with your collection, and we have a piece that does - maybe a deal could be found.   Please recall though, that this is a commercial enterprise, so we would find no advantage in a trade for pieces of like value. Of course, we are always buying - from whole collections to single pieces.

Sales Tax / Ca. only - Orders shipped to California addresses must pay applicable sales tax.

Gift Wrap - For an extra $7.00 per gift, we will gift wrap any item(s) and mail it directly to the recipient.  Nothing too fancy, but we will box the item(s) and tailor the wrap to the occasion (birthday, Christmas or other), with a "from / to" tag filled out as you specify.

Wants lists - We have locomotive builder's plates - you want locomotive builder's plates, but unfortunately, these are not always the same items.  If you would care to send us your "want list", we will store it and notify you (e-mail or phone, your choice) if we get that item in stock.  There is no obligation on your part - this is only a notification service and interest survey.  Send to: Wants lists

All items first come, first served - if you like it, you can own it.  No false-hope teaser prices, no bidding stress, no sniping - everything is "Buy It Now" priced.  Prices subject to change without notice.

Questions and comments welcomed.
