JM Hobby Supply and Railroad Artifact Auctions

JM Hobby Supply and Railroad Artifact Auctions has a history in railroad artifacts dating back nearly 50 years, when the owner of JM Hobby Supply, John DeBeck, received his first artifacts from the vice president of the Green Bay and Western Railroad, who came into the restaurant managed by John's dad for breakfast most every day during the week. John saved all of these items and began a collection of artifacts from Wisconsin and Michigan railroads that is second to none. This led him to meet many other collectors and enthusiasts throughout the last 50 years, and during this time, he began helping others to sell their collections through his firm, via online sales, or at shows. It was only natural for him to get involved with railroad artifact auctions, and he has put together a staff that is as crazy about railroads as he is! Auctioneer Aaron Ihander from Ihander Auctioneering, Wisconsin License #2234, is in charge of all JM Hobby Supply auctions. Aaron is also licensed in Michigan. We also feel very confident in the security of our sales, as Aaron pulls double-duty as a police officer in Menominee County! While he handles all of the auction details, JM Hobby Supply handles all of the posts, photos, titles, and descriptions, posting of all of the information seen for our sales on Live Auctioneers. Railroad experts Richard Foreen and William Eggleston help with identification and provenance on items, while local TV news producer Josh Rastia mans the camera and video portion of the online sales. Lucas Rastia and Nicole Rastia help with the online bidding process and lot displays, while others also play a major role in the success of our events. From sales of model trains and layouts, to railroad artifacts of all kinds, we have a long line of satisfied buyers and sellers that we hope you will be able to join and take part in for years to come. If you would like to consign railroad items to one of our sales, please reach out to us at 920-857-9670 or email us at Our staff looks forward to working with you!

Easy, seamless transaction!
I have bid in hundreds of RR auctions before, but the JM Hobby auctions are, without questions, the best in the USA. Easy to read and follow instructions, humorous news in their emails, quick customer service, fast shipping/great packaging, and an overall positive vibe. Bought two items at the last sale and very happy with how everything went! Keep up the great work!

Very Happy with This Auction
I was very happy with this auction. Both items I won were described accurately and photographed very well to show details. John went out of his way accommodating me, I had somehow overlooked the shipping invoice, so he had to resend it. Also-CLEARLY they pay attention to the most effective shipping-One heavy item was UPSd, the other shipped USPS mail. This auction was one of the best we've experienced with JMHobby.
