estimate of value

Postby taurino151 » Wed Oct 19, 2011 10:03 am

Have a PA GG1 and NYC Hudson, both in Lionel "Classic Series" boxes, unused. Can someone give me an approximation of what they are worth if I sell them. Thanks.

in the past i got some sent to the uk for $20 each including shipping. Would think conductors lower estimate would be about right nowdays. I think most people who wanted one have already got them by now

I have the GG1 and Hudson (and a 4-4-0 General, a B&M GP9 plus a UP GP9) that I bought from a hobby store via a train show for $10 each.

I have seen others at hobby shops, such as Charles Ro in Malden, MA go for as much as $25.

There are some on ebay now ranging from $15.00 to $30.00 if that helps

No Ben last ones were ten years ago as far as I know. Apparently from earlier knowledge supplied by someone years ago the person who commissioned the Lionel series was sacked as they were supposed to be cast in N scale. Not really sure if this is true but would not be surprised if it was a fact

Yes Alex I agree, for all of their faults the Lionels certainly raised a lot more interest in TT when they first came out. Even more so when even today we still are talking about them and trying to improve them or use them on layouts. So the unfortunate guy from Lionel should go down in TT folklore as a super hero
