About Stout Auctions:

Stout Auctions is the leading U.S. auction house dealing with Lionel toy trains, American Flyer, Marx, Ives, as well as other scale and toy trains. Since our first auction in 1993 Stout Auctions has become known for offering the highest quality model trains in both Prewar and Postwar Lionel. Stout Auctions offers everything from classic postwar Lionel or the colorful tinplate toys of the '30s, to modern trains from Lionel, MTH, K-Line, 3rd Rail and more. Stout Auctions also continues to lead the auction field in G scale, HO brass, American Flyer S gauge, and Railroadiana. If it's related to toy trains, you'll find it at Stout Auctions. Sales are held in Williamsport, Indiana or West Middlesex, Pennsylvania, easily accessible by interstate or airport. Unless otherwise noted, we accept absentee bids.

About our facilities:

Williamsport, Indiana: Since 2024 Williamsport has been home to Stout Auctions. Our 12,000 square foot facility was designed with selling toy trains in mind. We have dedicated areas for shipping, cataloging, and photographing the collections that we offer. The facility is well lit, clean, climate controlled, and fully secured. We have often heard people exclaim that walking into our gallery for the first time was like walking into a toy train museum. The staff at our Indiana gallery includes Greg Stout, Derek Thomas, Greg Elliot, and Jay Bumpus. Our Indiana office manager is Tina Stull.

West Middlesex, Pennsylvania: In 2024 Stout Auctions expanded to a second location in Pennsylvania. Greg Stout along with Gary and Katy Zippie have partnered together to offer the same great options as our Indiana gallery, with the convenience of an east coast location. Our Pennsylvania also includes Kayla, Debbie, and Helen.
