RailSwap.org -- 16,000+ Ads Since 1998



To post ads, you must first pass a test. This is an easy test: send your complete contact information (name, company name, phone, email, physical address) and briefly and clearly why you want to use this site, using this CONTACT link.

If you ask "how do I register to use the site?" or do not send all the above information, you have flunked the test. Your message will be ignored and deleted.

At least 50% of people fail this test, which is astonishing.


What's New




Ads may now be Offer Type 'Sell' or 'Buy' (For Sale/Wanted). We hope to revise the names to something more intuitive! If you have a wanted ad posted, please make sure it is set correctly.


You are now required to select a location when posting or editing ads. Log in to your account and set your default location so it will automatically show up in your new ads.


Do not put contact info into your ad body! Fill in your user profile so that your contact info is available in every ad.




Registration is now open to new users.


If you are posting ads:

- do not set the price to 0 unless the item is FREE, because that's what it will say.

- do not put your contact info into the ad body. It belongs in your contact information.




The new RailSwap site using OSClass software has been activated for those with ads which were posted before 4/28/2012. If you have an ad on the site, you should have received an email about changes. Haven't seen it? Check your SPAM filter!


After a bit of testing, we will open the site for new users to register for free. Thanks for your patience.


Some of the new features:


Future upgrades:




After our hosting company broke our website during some "upgrades", we decided it was finally time to migrate RailSwap to more modern classifieds software. We are in the process of moving data and hope to have the new ads up soon.


Do not put contact info in the main text body of ads. Put it in database fields where it belongs (i.e. name, address, phone, cell, email).

Violators may find their ads mysteriously disappear!
