About Catawiki's Model train auction

The sight of an iconic locomotive steaming its way across the landscape is one which inspires wonder and emotion in many people. A brilliant combination of technical ingenuity, careful design and precision engineering - the raw power of trains and the sense of history they evoke has created countless model railway enthusiasts across the world. Just as with full size locomotives, model railway engines are built according to a specific gauge or width of track, common gauges include OO and HO (16.5mm); N (9mm) and O (32mm). Whether you are looking to sell locomotive engines; carriages; track; model stations or other accessories, Catawiki’s model train auctions feature locomotives and accessories covering most of the main gauge sizes and include pieces by iconic manufacturers such as Fleischmann and Märklin.

Selling your model railway objects on Catawiki will provide your special object with exposure to millions of potential bidders and the perfect marketplace of enthusiasts and fellow collectors.

Our professional auctioneers ensure that the auction process is hassle-free, through their supervision; while the validity of bids placed are checked by our notary officials.
