Trains 4 Africa

.. what a peculiar name!

We have been importing/exporting Model Train products into the African continent since 1990, and the name reflects our efforts in supplying discerning modellers with the very best from around the world!

Our Company trades under the name Trains4Sale, being a private company operating in the Republic of South Africa and having its registered address at Fort Klipdam South Africa.

We are duly registered as a Company in South African, and hold the relevant Import/Export Licenses and Permits as required by Law.

We pride ourselves in delivering Top Quality products and Excellent Customer service!

The Company employs only a handful of skilled staff members and focuses on E-Commerce, JIT Warehousing and has an established International Distribution Network.

The Company relies heavily on Technology, and has an integrated warehouse and distribution system, with Customer Contact primarily being through web technologies. 


A Big problem in Africa is that many Toy shops sit with "old" stock, a limited customer base, limited resources to continuously replenish stock and an ever decreasing currency.  

As we understand the fear that many traditional shop owners have in selling their goods online, we created a simple yet powerful online e-commerce system that allows these shops to make available select goods that we load onto our system. The consumer gets access to quality goods at reduced prices, while the shop owners get paid promptly which allows them to source new products.
