Welcome to DASH
Making Model Trains More Fun and Affordable
DASH combines a world of model railroading information with useful features that take the stress out of your hobby and leave you with more time to enjoy your trains. It's more than just a great place to buy and sell. DASH also helps collectors manage, share, and value their collections.
DASH features a Catalog of more than 150,000 trains and accessories. You'll never have to ask "does it exist" again, as you can track down and identify practically every train ever made in our Catalog. The photos and item details on Catalog pages will make you a model train expert in no time.
Once you've discovered items in the DASH Catalog, you can use My Collection to manage your own personal owned and wanted lists, totally for free! Add and remove items from My Collection with ease, or maintain a wanted list to help you keep track of upcoming purchases.
The DASH Marketplace has thousands of great items for sale. It's easy to navigate and its convenient sorting options make finding deals a breeze. Selling on DASH is a quick and rewarding process that gives the control to the seller without the risk of up-front costs.
Upload photos of your collection or layout and show it off with your own free Collection Showcase. Add your collecting story, provide videos, and let viewers see the impressive collection you've put together.
On DASH News we provide regular content to keep you up-to-date in the world of trains. Stay entertained with original articles and features to complement the latest breaking news.
