bring a smartphone with you and check completed ebay auctions and sign up for liveauctioneers.com and check completed Stout Auctions. Stout has all of their completed catalogs going back 10 years on that site. So much more realistic than a book.

Scales Modeled: HO ... and growing Lionel O

David Doyle has written a very nice book on prewar Lionel ... largely tinplate stuff ... Standard gauge, O gauge, etc. "Standard Catalog of Lionel Trains, 1900-1942" (2nd edition or later).

As with any book, it's hard to say whether his price targets reflect a bouncy market. But his inventory, descriptions, and photos for identification are quite good.

Try Amazon dot com. Good prices.

Or don't buy something with uncertainty but something you know and are looking for.
