Auction Flier

The Nottawasaga Model Railway holds the only model railway auction in Central Ontario. We are less than two hours from Toronto to the south, Stratford to the south-west, Lindsay to the east and Huntsville to the north.

Until this year we only held one auction, but with the demise of the original Boomers auction that used to be held in Harriston/Minto we are holding a second event to spread the load, so to speak, over the course of the year.

Our auctions are held on the first Saturday in May and the last Saturday in October in St. Patrick's Church Parish Hall, in Stayner, ON.

These are wonderful opportunities for all model railroaders to buy 'experienced' (i.e. used) model railway locomotives, rolling stock, track, scenery, buildings, electronics, sometimes complete layouts, in all scales plus videos, books and so on. It's an eclectic mix of everything the model railroader will need, and is a well attended event - at 2017 Spring Auction we had over 100 potential buyers and 24 sellers, whose 'for sale' items took up about 170' of table space.

Non-model railroaders can sell model railway equipment they no longer need or know what to do with. We often have estate sale items as well as equipment from the parents of children no longer involved in the hobby.

A lot pick-up service is available, so if you have items for sale but can't attend the auction yourself, we can take care of your sales for you.

We open the doors for both consignments and viewing at 8:30am and the auction itself starts at 10:00am. Sellers are assigned table space on a first come, first served basis, or, in other words, if the seller is at the door at 8:30am, his/her items will be some of the first on the block. Sellers can put a reserve price on the items they're offering for sale if they choose to do so. HO and N Scale test tracks with DC and DCC controllers for testing locomotives are available.

Chili, sandwiches, donuts, fruit pies or cinnamon buns, cookies etc. as well as coffee, tea, water and pop are available, served by the lovely wives, daughters and grand-daughters of our members.

Admission is $5.00 and we charge the sellers a 10% commission on sales.
