If you or someone you know has model train items that are no longer used, or are thinking of thinning a collection, please consider donating them to the HUB Division as a possible tax deduction. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and can accept such charitable contributions. All that's required is that you supply us with a list of the items along with your clearly marked name and address when those items are donated. You will then receive a receipt from our treasurer where you may value the items and possibly take a deduction on your income tax.

The HUB division will sell all donated items at either its spring or fall show, and use the proceeds to fund its educational programs and activities for public benefit.

It's a win-win situation. You clean out your attic, garage or basement of model trains and get a tax deduction. We are able to put those items into the hands of people who can actually use them and help to support our programs. Contact our Donations Chairman, Dan Fretz, by email to make arrangements.

Note that we cannot provide appraisals for donated items. Like the Salvation Army approach, all we can do is provide you with a donation receipt for the list of donated items. To determine the value, consider checking similar items for sale at train shows and on online sites such as eBay.
