Lone Star Trains

Your Classic Era Toy Train Headquarters

Want to SELL your trains, railroad collectibles, 
toys, or other collectibles?
Lone Star Trains is happy to purchase these items from you
--a piece or a collection.
Why Lone Star Trains?
We buy collections large and small, and we have travelled
all over the country to buy.

We will come to you. Clay and Lisa Kinsner
have a long history in the train and toy business, 
starting with weekend train shows, then running a retail
brick and mortar for twelve years, and
now selling largely on-line and by phone to customers
old and new.  You do not stay in business for over two decades
by making people unhappy or treating folks unfairly.

While we need to make a profit when we buy
merchandise, we also understand better than most how
difficult it is to let go of a collectible,
as well as the difficult circumstances that may 
sometimes initiate the idea to sell. Clay and
Lisa have been involved with the highly respected
national organization the Train Collectors Association
for many years.  In fact, Clay served as a chapter
president for a record 10 years before being elected the
Secretary-Treasurer of the Lone Star Division. Clay
currently writes a Collectibles column in the railroad
magazine the Cowcatcher. Because of our extensive history in
the field, we have a wide knowledge base that
allows us to have interest in everything from
Thomas the Tank Engine to a railroad key to an old wind
up toy to a Lionel standard gauge engine to a DCC
equipped prototypical engine.

Our goal is always to find a value that makes both of 
us happy. If we cannot do that, no hard feelings. 
If you want to deal with folks who will handle your sale with 
care and tact, and in a discreet manner, give us a call.

We look forward to visiting with you.
