Looks like a lot of nice brass stuff. I would check with ebay and see what price people are asking for comparable pieces. A lot of nice Great Northern stock and I am jealous.

"Not sure what I have here..."

You have some VERY nice stuff. Some of those items may bring in some good $$$ if you're intent on selling.

Yep, some very desirable trains. (y)
You find a make look at this site, click Literature.
A ton of info in there, no values but pictures and info that may help you.
But you need to narrow down the manufacturer.

Some real nice trains you have, do you plan on selling?
Don't let anyone "steal" them from you if you plan on selling.
Watch out for the ones that will buy the whole collection at once, if you ask me all they do rip you off !
You will get pennies, if that, on the dollar. :cool:

More detailed individual pictures would help here, and any lettering if you can find any.

Wow, I just looked again.
Would they be from a relative of yours that passed on and your getting them?
Granddad or something?
If so he had all those so he must have had some kind of layout too?
Excuse me, I got to wipe the drool from my chin now. :p

Thanks for the information. I am planning on selling them, once I have an accurate idea of make and model so I can get an idea of what they are worth. I will post some pictures once I have them

They are part of my fathers collection. I live in a different state so do not have ready access to them I belive he has a bunch of O gauge Lionel as well. I am planning on going back there to get them soon and go through what he had

Father passed on I am guessing?
As he should/would have been able to provide some info on them.
Take your time , do research and get what they are worth.
Find the same on auction sites and watch what they sell for.
Even then you may not see the correct worth value.
But most of the time collectors will see and bid accordingly.
Even then it might be in the last minute.
