Hello Ladies and Gents.
My Name is Larry and I am not a collector of Lionel Trains but needed a place to start as I have Lionel trains that were handed down to me from my parents.
They are long passed away and the trains in question are I believe to be O scale and I will post photos when I get them.

I feel these trains were from the 1950s as i remember as a youth in the 1960s to play with them on the carpet. The tracks are the 3 rail type. the engines are quite heavy. I am hopeful that one or more of the well knowledged can point me in the right direction of selling them or to take them to a local show. I have no interest in them...and there are quite few cars that came with it.
Thankyou for the opportunity to be here.
I will begin taking photos soon.

Regards Larry

Hi Larry. To post in the for sale section you have to list a price, obo.

I would suggest you post some pics (you'll need 5 posts to be able to add pics) and then let the o scale guys tell you what you have. Then you can search around and find out what it's all worth.

Good Morning Gents ..thankyou for the replies and I will read the Forsale rules before posting.

I would like to get an idea first of what my parents had with these trains ..as i know the Engine itself may be of a higher value than most others. Some are and some are not.

I will post photos in the correct sub forum first before posting forsale. Im very close to the South Philly area and hopefully these will go into a collection of appreciation.

I do not collect trains but research and collect WW2 militaria and understand the appreciation of those who collect trains as well as those with other hobbies:)

One question though is there an image size limit that I need to know about before posting photos?

Best Regards Larry

In the 'attachment' window (see my reply in your other thread) you will see a list of all file types and size/resolution limit for each type.

Generally, you want to reduce the size to around 1280 wide maximum. That will allow you decent quality uploads and you won't run into the size limitations. If you attempt to upload too many images in one shot, sometimes you'll run into a cryptic board error, just upload in batches of four or five and you should be fine.
