Model Railroading Appraising System™ – Windows 7, 8, 10



How much is your collection worth?

You have collected model trains for many years now but you just haven’t had the ability or the means to regulate and calculate your collections value. Yes, you probably have a rough estimation of about how much each piece in your collection is worth, but you never really had a complete organized database that accurately provides you with an entire overlook and estimated value.


That is why we designed Fort Knox! The program is PATENTED and COPYRIGHTED according to US and International trade secrets treaties!

This is a new concept in the Model Railroading world!!!


Fort Knox is an advanced appraising system for model trains. The program is specially designed to keep records of your model railroading equipment and its value. Furthermore, with Fort Knox you can forecast its appreciation. It is possible to calculate the estimated appreciation of your individual items or the entire collection! The software analyzes its purchase price, current value and estimated appreciation and forecasts how much it will be worth at any given time in the future. For example, you may need to know what a specific locomotives value will be in exactly one, two or ten years from now. Based on the initial information that the user has provided, the program is capable of calculating your inventory’s appreciation in the click of a button. In the instance that you may have sold the item, the program will tell you your profit or loss.


Fort Knox maintains your entire model railroading collection in an easy to manage, easy to view system. It records vital information like purchase date, purchase price, manufacturer, condition and much more.


You can print a full report of the items history or forecasted value. The program has a history record feature for each item which is essential for the item’s evaluation, especially when it comes to antiques.


One of the key advantages of the program is its customization capability. Fort Knox is fully customizable when it comes to organizing your database. You can create an un-limited amount of categories and sub-categories to successfully maintain your entire railroading collection! This advanced feature enables you to store all of your items according to their classification.


You may include an image with each item which will appear as a thumb nail and allow you to visualize your collection. You will be able to locate and view your item from its category or just by clicking on its image. This feature is very efficient to quickly identify an item within the database. Fort Knox is also equipped with a slide show feature which enables you to scan the entire inventory. The software provides a reporting system and print method to maintain hard copies of you collection. The software comes with a built-in tutorial and on-line help.


One of the most important aspects of the program is its simplicity! We especially focused on making it easy and user friendly for the everyday collector!
