Old dusted model

Hello, I don't know if i'm asking in the right place but I'm looking to sell Mehano T356 in rather bad condition. I would like to make sure that it's not something rare and should i just sell it for what it's worth in parts (Right now got somebody who was willing to buy it for around $25)

A Google search shows that as a Mehano HO train set. Is that correct? If so, there are two recent sales. One for around $35 and another for $75.
A photo of what you have might help in assessing value.

It's in really bad condition, some pieces are broken off. I guess i'm lucky that somebody wants to buy it for parts. Thanks for help.

Take your $25 to the bank. It's not a valuable piece at all.

Ooh! That makes it "vintage", and judging from some prices of items I've seen on eBay with that label, it could be worth thousands!
