Evening,

I'm helping the lady next door with a yard sale this weekend. She's just going to sell this stuff but I told her I'd try and see if there is anything special in the boxes that she should get more for. Is there anything special you see in the pictures or should she just let it go. Thanks up front for your time ..

No yard sale. Ebay them. Each set individually for at least 5 days. Pick through the box of plastics. If nothing there, they can go to the yard sale. There may be several hundred dollars' worth there.

Im impressed. The first is a 1668 a prewar engine. 30 minimum. Can't tell the condition. 20 more if a whistle tender. Made in the late thirties. Not much value in cars.
The first box I do not recognize. May be interesting.
The cars are all worn 3 to 5. Go for the deal sell. Engines are all Marx plastic sell fast. The Marx box is interesting
Don't know the brand for the HO.
can't price the Silver Red Marx Real nice though. A prewar piece.

Update the red silver is M10005 set. Mint in box e bay sold 167 plus 72 shipping.
If you do not ebay try craiglist selling . The yardsale may not generate the interest.

That was fun. I need a 1668 body, ebay store was selling for 25. I never bought.

Thank you

That's what she needed to know. Thank you and I'll let you know if they are going to be posted on eBay.

Actually, that was me not thinking. I had posted on another train forum earlier today and after 60 page views not a single answer so I pulled the pictures not thinking that they would disappear here also. I'll get them hosted under a friends name and edit the post. ... sorry 'bout that

I knew that must have been worth in the hundreds of dollars :)

You can also host them here if you want as we have our own model train picture gallery, or you could also attach them to the post directly from your computer...

I would guess 75 tops. No box. Somebody would have to really be into Marx. They came in different color schemes too.

Saw craiglist in NY had it for 500
I am sure his phone is tied up. LOL:laugh:
I think it is a windup from the 20's
Couldn't find a good info link.
Plenty for sale though. All auctions. All types of auctions.If fact every auction.
