old train set
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 27, 2001 7:52 PM
High I have an old train set that was given to me by my uncle that got it from his uncle can you help me value the item.

It is a Marx Mechanical Diesel train set in the original box with original directions. It has a price tag of $2.98 on it.

Any help would be appreciated

Your local hobby shop may have a Marx pricing guide. Alternatively, look for one in an isue of Classic Toy Trains. Guide prices are only a guide which means you could get plus or minus 30%of the vlue indicated. Condition of the set is critical. To the untrained eye, an excellent looking piece one step above junk. I'm not a Marx collector, so I can't be of direct help. Good luck.
