Why choose Model Railway Emporium?

Over the years, we have bought many collections, big and small across the UK.

We are an approachable family business and this reflects in our professional, discrete service we offer to all customers.

Our competitive pricing structure has proven beneficial for many over the years, often paying comparably more than some of the bigger players within the market.

Alongside this, we can formulate a personalised, part-ex indicative quote for anybody wishing to change era, gauge or interest.

Simplified, fair quote and convenient collection.

Size of collection and distance are no object. We will travel anywhere in the UK and abroad.

Where distance doesn’t pay for the volume of items, we will pay the postage instead. 

For more information or an indicative quote, please get in touch by email or phone.

We regret we will not be able to purchase model railway layout boards, but we will consider any model railway collection that requires a layout stripping with sufficient product and distance/time permits the visit.

Payment method is dependent on customer preference. We can offer cash on collection, bank transfer, cheque and part-exchange and a mixture of the above is also welcomed.
