Found - Grandads Shed !

Postby milkyc2020 » Thu Oct 26, 2017 12:30 pm

Hi All

Please excuse my lack of knowledge and if this is the wrong group to post!

I have come across these items and have no idea what the value (if any) is.

So all in all I have:

INTERCITY 225 SET AS SEEN (WORKING) - ONLY 5 STRAIGHT PIECES SO MAYBE ONE MISSING?
3 COAL WAGONS
2 MORE INTERCITY CARRIAGES (SAME AS IN SET?)
1 SUPER SPRINTER
1 GREY POWERED TRAIN (WORKING) (NOT SURE WHAT ELSE TO SAY!)

It seems like the boxes don't match.

Any advice appreciated.

Mike

The key to value - is to get hold of the Hornby references - I can see a few on the end of the boxes - like R741 on the Class 91 set - then a quick trawl through ebay and Google - to find the item in similar condition - should help with a value.

Gut feeling - there are no diamonds/overly valuable items - but I am a steam man - so might be way off the mark.

The best items the 225 set and extra matching coaches. These have not been upgraded significantly near 30 years on, and there's almost bound to be someone looking to build a set.

The gray loco is a very nicely repainted old triang class 37. Sadly not worth much money but all that you have listed should get more than you have listed it at. However I have noticed that second hand prices on ebay are quite subdued at the moment.
