Through Catawiki, I hope to awaken a younger crowd’s enthusiasm for model trains.
Marijn Zeevalk is fascinated by model trains. His father once took him to a fair and, at the age of 11, he brought home his very first starter set. His collection grew steadily and he soon developed a preference for Märklin trains. He especially liked to run steam locomotives and diesel trains on his tracks. Marijn delved further into the model railway market during his studies. He purchased large collections through fairs and online, kept certain models for himself and sold the rest.
All that experience led Marijn to make a career out of his hobby. He receives highly varied lots every week for assessment. Personally, he is excited when new models come along with various digital gadgets. He also likes dealing with old models, because the research this requires is all part of the fun. Marijn hopes that Catawiki will attract a younger model train-loving crowd, so he can further share his enthusiasm for his passion.
