For generations, children and adults alike have enjoyed everything from simply playing with trains to collecting, designing and building model railroads. Whether you are a model railroad enthusiast who loves to plan, build and create your own railway with model train sets, or you are shopping for a child who loves toy trains, eBay has everything you need.
Shop for Starter Sets
If you’re starting from scratch, the fastest way to begin is with a complete toy train set. Most complete train sets come with all the model railroad supplies you need, from the railroad tracks and controls to the train cars and the model railroad scenery.
Toy Trains for Children
There is a distinct difference between model railroads and toy trains. Model trains are built to look like exact replicas of the real thing. Toy trains are more interactive, less realistic and more durable than model trains—usually made from plastic or wood—which makes them better suited for children.
Vintage Train Sets for Collectors
For history buffs with a special interest in trains, eBay has a variety of intricate vintage trains for sale from different eras. Options range from full vintage train sets, such as a Vintage Marx Train Set, or specific vintage train cars from beloved brands like Lionel, American Flyer and Bachmann.
A Full Range of Train Parts and Accessories
Model trains differ in size from tiny full-scale indoor sets to backyard railroads designed large enough to carry train lovers themselves. Model train engines and control systems also vary widely, from electric cars to steam powered to gas-electric model train locomotives that closely simulate the engines of modern trains. eBay carries a range of model trains to suit the specific interests of any train hobbyist, including supplies for any scale you may be looking for—Z scale, N scale, TT scale, HO scale, standard scale and rare scales.
