BTOC, Inc. Train Collection Sales Assistance Policy
  • for Members In Good Standing     or
  • for Spouse or Children of Deceased Member in Good Standing
    (at any time during the 12 months following the passing of the member)
  • provided as a benefit of membership in the BTOC
  • BTOC does not assume any responsibility in the sale or purchase of any goods 
  • all transactions are solely an agreement between the seller and buyer

Although we have had the policy in force for a long time, it has not included the WEB nor has it been clearly stated or codified. With our Members getting older and possibly suffering reduced mobility, a family plan is needed, particularly if families are less interested in either Collectin' or Runnin' our trains.

For Sale:
Fellow Members and Friends;


I am downsizing my LGB/Large Scale Collection. It is large and includes engines, rolling stock (including special BTO Club items), buildings and accessories. Some are rare and/or unusual. There are too many to list. Before offering my items on an auction site like ebay, I'd like to give BTO Club members a first chance.

Please contact me and I'll be glad to send a list of items for your perusal.
