We Buy Trains!

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 traveled 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 online 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.

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.
