no idea. i had some old tyco that i resurrected with some new wheels and couplers. kinda ok really. then i bought some cause i wanted the engine to experiment with on and they were part of the deal. i also retrofitted them. i think having said all that the value is rather low unless there's something in that set someone just must have. then you may get a bit more. maybe $5 ea?

FYI, I pay $2.00 for those types of cars at yard sales (no shipping cost). I would not buy the power pack or engine.
But, I've seen people pay more.
If that is all you have, post them on ebay with a starting bid of $25. You can also set a reserve, e.g if you will not take less than $30, you set the reserve at $30.

Pleas do not take offense if you think my prices are too low:)

Good luck

I would say that around 25$ is a fair price for the lot.

Although, there are folks who are collecting Tyco.....I think there are groups out there that do that....they know what's rare and desireable, and what's common......also the box/package is valuable when it comes to collecting.......

Good luck in whatever you do!

If both locos run, that's a good in person price. I don't see anything particularly valuable there and collectors are going to want boxed examples.

If putting it on eBay, I'd suggest a starting bid of between 15 and 20 bucks just because the shipping costs involved.

Best of luck whatever you decide.
