Would anyone know the retail value of Lionel "HO" scale locomotives? When I was a kid I used to cut grass for a nieghbor who couldn't do it anymore and as payment one day she gave me to different locomotives a gold Chessie System Diesel Locomotive, a small steram with coal tender. Since then I longer have them. Due to extenuianting circumstances I had to sell them but not knowing enough about them, I let them go cheaply, like 20 a piece. But they were still in working order. This lady that gave them to me used to work at Lionel and they were employee only type models. I also used to work there years ago I was in the warehouse department, I used to pull the parts for the production department. It was a cool place to work for the most part. But they paid very poor. Anyway I thought that I would just post this out of curiosity.
