You could get big bucks for it.Hello all, I am new here and I do not have a huge collection but have inherited my grandfathers Lionel "army" train set from when he was a child. I am guessing pre war but can not find any information on this set. Can anyone tell me a model number or where to even start with this set please? Should I try and restore it, sell it, keep it? I have the transformer and original 0 gauge track with it as well. The bottom half of the box was destroyed but have the top half as pictured. TIA :thumbsup:
This guy made one.
Look at the bottom of this link.
SAVE THE BOX DO NOT DESTROY!
I can dig up more later, got to go to work.
Don't restore the paint just cleanup the engine and lube it. Does it run? Watch the transformer wire as it is old.
