Group Description

This is THE place where HO-Scale items move. Whether it is new in the box or just collecting dust, you may have what others are looking for. You might even find your own lost treasures, here.

We welcome all who are looking to buy, sell, or trade:

-HO locomotives, rolling stock, and accessories 
-Hard-to-find items 
-Train-related videos, books, printed material, and other media 
-Spare parts and junkers 

We also welcome Retailers and Manufacturers offering deep-discounts, close-outs, or rare items.

You will find HOswap to be a friendly forum without ego and arrogance. Our members own the group and they decide how we do things.  

Please follow these guidelines to post: 

Your Subject Line should include a code:
FS: For Sale 
WTB: Want To Buy 
WTT or TR: Want To Trade 
WLW: Wish List Wednesday

Attach a photo of your item(s) or place one in the Photos Section with a link to it in your posting. 
Post all replies to questions on the message board. 
Conduct your business by private email. 

When an item sells, please DELETE ALL photos and POST a SOLD message. 

Do not post “or best offer” sales as that can lead to an auction-like bidding competition. You sales are to be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. 

DISCLAIMER - The Owner and Moderators of this Group hold NO responsibility nor any liability for any transactions nor any claims made. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. All business is conducted at your own risk. Please be honest and work out any problems between yourselves. The Owner is not a mediator.

Phone numbers should only be posted within off-list correspondence.

Violators of these simple principles will be banned!
