I am new to the site and looking to get a little info on some engines I recently inherited from a relative who was a big model rairlroader any info would be greatly appreciated for I cant find this one on a google search which leads me to think it could be a rarer engine. It is a Rivarossi L SP/R 4-4-2 Great Northern engine #3000 All the paperwork is in italian the owners manual has a date of 1954 the original certificato says 52 in red ink stamp which I believe is the model 1952? This is a Steam Engine with tender and is as new in the original box and packaging. Is it rare? What do you think it may be worth I am thinking of selling it because I am more of a brass engine fan. Any info from the train gods would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum...

Here it is...

As for value, HO has few pieces outside of brass that garner any real coin. My best guess would be in the $60 - 100 range if it runs and is in very good condition. DCC has made the market too squirrelly for any fixed estimates, and I'm more than happy to be proven wrong.
