Rookie need informations

Hi train fans,

Sunday, I register for take some bids on auctions, I win 3 auctions and I didn't have any news since. What I've do wrong? Do I have to put money in my account before bidding? Or something else? Something I don't understand?

Thanks for your help.


Re: Rookie need informations

Hello J-C. Welcome to Choochoo Auctions. What items or numbers did you win? Charlie's staff is pretty quick with their responses, so I wonder if you were outbid in the last instant. The item numbers will solve that question.

Hope this helps. If not, contact Charlie directly at

jc-go to your account-type in password and user name
go to your auctions you won-write down each item number you won-i always call charlie-i have a credit card on file to speed things up.just call and give item no's of items won and user name.
i noticed they are a lot of people ******** about snipe bidding-they are a lot of dealers bidding against you with big pockets on this and two dollar bids over the reserve price is not going to win you anything.good luck
