Welcome to
Toys of the Past!

YOUR SOURCE FOR VINTAGE TOYS & TRAINS

My name is Ray Ellen. I have been a collector of toys and toy trains for quite a few years and am a member of the Train Collectors Association. Some of you may be familiar with our Vienna Station toy train business listed on the Internet as trainmarket.com I have been selling toys and toy trains for over 25 years, with about 18 years of experience selling on the Internet. Actually, we were one of the first toy train sites on the net and carry a large inventory of vintage trains from many manufacturers.

The toy offerings will be eclectic. There are very few old toys that I have seen that I do not like! You will find that tin-lithographed toys appear frequently as these are my personal favorites. Also, there will be a big emphasis on transportation toys, transportation related toys, military toys and action toys. As I identify areas of particular interest to our customers, I will aggressively seek out these for our listings. I will also be willing to try to “hunt-down” those specific items you desire. I have always tried to keep prices low, and have always worked toward the “best service in the business” and great value for the dollar spent.

The format for our listings will be what I call catalog format. To the extent possible, we will keep similar toys grouped in our major categories which are  Marx, American and Foreign. Each offering will be pictured and a description and price will be provided.
