Any idea where that $50,000 number came from?
Used modern trains, especially from a one-off gauge like G, go for a fraction of their estimated value.

Best way to realistically gauge value (pun intended) is to search on ebay for similar models and see what the selling prices are. Don't fall into the trap of going off of asking prices.

Another option is to register at They have a site where you can upload your inventory and a paid membership feeds in real time values into your collection to estimate worth.

Good luck,
Big AL; running Lionel trains for half a century!

A post about this company just came up on the O scale forum. They are predominantly O but have had G scale auctions. Might be another resource for you.

A local business recently had a G scale layout professionally installed.

Knowing virtually nothing about quality model trains, Tim and Linda went to the internet. They contacted Train Installations LLC of Woodstock, Georgia, to ask about the possibilities. Just six weeks after the idea was hatched, the train installation was completed last Tuesday.
Might be worth a call to Train Installations to see if they would be interested.
