Value of trains?
« on: July 12, 2018, 09:34:00 pm »
Hello all
             Long story short my FIL has a lot of pre and post war Lionel trains, tracks, controllers etc...I'm going up this weekend to start taking stock of the items and to photograph them. The end game is to sell them in the simplest manner. What is the best way to determine the value of this trains etc...?

Thanks

The best way to determine value of your trains is to check the online auction sites. Condition of the trains, and whether you have boxes for them is what determines value.

If there is a hobby shop in your area that deals with trains, you can take them there for an evaluation.
