Hello! I'm considering selling pieces of HO track, and am wondering how HO track is usually priced? Are separate prices assigned for curved pieces as opposed to straight, for example? Would it be unreasonable to sell track by how much the box full of track pieces weighs? Is there a range for pricing that is generally considered reasonable? I'm just looking for some reference points.
Thanks for any help you might offer!

What kind of track is it? Brass or steel track is probably worthless, for all practical purpose. Frankly, used track probably isn't a big seller, but it's attractiveness to someone who needs a bunch of track will be the low price.

I've recently sold some code 100, Atlas flex track, nickle silver on e-bay.
$3 for a 36" long track.

Brass track (copper color like a penny) is not worth the shipping cost IMHO.
I've watched it get listed on e-bay and get zero bidders. I've actually stripped ties off of some and thrown it in with scrap copper when I make a trip to the scrap buyers.

Nickle silver sectional track, short 9" pieces may be sold, but not profitable.

And, what condition is it in ?: New ? Used ? VERY used (paint, plaster on them. rails on the flex pieces been clipped off on their ends , missing ties ) ?..
I sold new old stock in perfect condition so I could switch over to code 83.
As for the brass, I still have many new old stock turnouts which may not sell.
The biggest problem I've seen with the brass track (being older) is that with some brands the ties have become extremely brittle.
