Montage Worldwide began in a small way in 2002.  Initially selling model railroad parts and supplies on eBay, the company made its appearance on its own website about 1 1/2 years later.  eBay activity tapered off as website sales increased, until  we ended eBay  sales about 2008  year end.  In recent years, product line emphasis has shifted more and more to printed model railroad and prototype items - new and back issue magazines and new, used and rare books.  We enjoy searching for rare railroad books.  Old habits die hard, so you'll still find a few hard goods model railroad items lurking in our pages, too.
 
 
Trains of all types are our business.  You may notice, though, we tend to to favor steam and narrow gauge in our inventory.  That's intentional, but not meant as a commentary on other methods of power or the broader gauges.  We like all trains!

We don't send out much mail. No regular newsletter; no flashy sale emails. But if you'd like to hear from us from time to time when we do have something to say, or if you just like to get emails, submit your email address. We'll drop a note once in a while.


Thanks. We'll stay in touch - you do the same.

About Shipping Charges:

With few exceptions, we ship with U. S. Postal Service.

However, because of the shape and dimensions of  items vary, we can’t calculate in advance an exact shipping charge. The total seen at checkout time is the MAXIMUM you will be charged.  It may be adjusted downward if we find we can ship in a way that provides the same level of service at a lower rate.  If the amount you have paid is less than the amount needed to ship by the best method, we pay the difference.  You will not pay any more than what you were charged at checkout.  The Regional Priority Flat Rate service of the USPS is what we use for most domestic addresses.  Often we will not be able to select the best shipping method until the order is pulled from inventory, weighed, and an appropriate box size is chosen.  The mix of items in the order can affect the choice of shipping method, as well.  In some cases the dimensions of the package will affect the rate. 

The amount charged on your order is the most you will be charged.  We always will try to select the lowest cost and best shipment method for your order.  If we are able to ship for a lower cost than you were charged, we will refund any overpayment that amounts  to more than $1.00. 

When we get a discounted commercial rate, the savings are passed on to you.  We do not try to make money on shipping or handling fees.  We sell books and magazines- not postage.

About International Shipping Charges:

We are a bit limited in the choice of international shipping methods.  Occasionally we find that we can use International Flat Rate Priority Mail to lower your shipping and handling costs..  When that is possible, the same policy is followed as in domestic shipping.  If the package can be shipped for a lower amount than was charged at checkout, any amount of US$1.00 or more will be refunded to your credit card or PayPal account.  As with domestic sales, the amount you are charged on checkout is the most you will pay.  We adjust charges down, but not up.
