The Ultimate Model Train Values Guide

Aug. 11th 2013

Finding an updated and reliable model trains values guide is nearly impossible. There simply isn't a good paper-based handbook for model train prices these days, and that's left a lot of railroaders looking for a consistently updated and accurate authority on model train values.

Whether you're looking to buy a vintage train for a fair price at a local store, or want to sell your own collection piece by piece for its true value, a reliable price guide is a mandatory accessory for modern day railroading.

But if you look around for your accessory of choice, you'll quickly realize there simply isn't a comprehensive and reliable handbook for train values. You certainly can't flip through a dusty old book expecting to find a trustworthy price in the current market. 

Even the paper price guides that get printed these days suffer from an unbearably long turnaround between price assessment and publication, meaning they miss out out on the latest trends and variations in the volatile world of model train values.

You might be one of the many collectors who rely on closed sales on sites like ebay to indvidually determine specific model train values. But that takes lots of work and loads of calculation each and every time you need a number. And it's a process which is practically impossible to replicate on the road or on the trading floor of a show, leaving you without an answer in your biggest time of need.

So a lot of collectors think there just isn't an ideal solution. But here you are, reading an article on, which just so happens to be the home of the world's single biggest model train price guide! It's regularly updated, covers tens of thousands of trains, and can be carried in your pocket thanks to the DASH Model Trains app. It solves all your problems in a convenient and efficient package without any of the headaches.

The DASH price guide works with an online system that's easy to navigate by scale or simply search by name. Once you've found a train's listing, the values and associated information will be included, along with any photos or descriptions other users have contributed. It's a simple, easy, and absurdly convenient modern day equivalent of the paper-based values guide.  

It might sound too good to be true, but seeing is believing. So let's take a look at a sample page from the DASH digital price guide. What could be better for an example than this cool diesel locomotive worth more than $450 in the package?

As you can see, all the information you need to buy, sell, or trade the item is present. You can take a look at the photos to make sure it's the right train, and you can even see what other collectors have rated the train before making any important decisions. And if for some reason you feel like the value is incorrect, you can even leave a comment with your value suggestions for our team of experts to investigate.
