I agree completely with Woodie.

Besides, online forums are a terrible way to get rid of stuff.  Plenty of places online and in the real world that will accept used trains and train collections.  With a forum you've got to post, sift through the pages upon pages of posts, contact the one or two people who are generally interested, trade addresses, set up shipping, wait for a check to arrive, etc...  It's simply more trouble than it's worth.

But if you need another reason, a forum that allows stuff to be bought, traded, and sold quickly turns into an online farmer's market for train stuff.  This is a modeling forum for people to show off and discuss model trains, not Craigslist.  I can't speak for anyone else, but I'd greatly prefer the forum to be kept that way.

Pass it on, no damn selling on the site!  {putting that in my signature for the next few weeks}

I'd hate to see people get banned for trying to get rid of their stuff, so heed Woodie's warning well and go find a more appropriate platform to sell stuff. Please.
