Who knows Lionel trains?

I've got a steamer trunk full of 50s vintage Lionel trains, track, etc. that I am looking to get rid of but would like to get a sense of what it might be worth.

Some engines:
From Lionel


And my personal favorite, the Rocket Car! I've got the car, the rocket and the gantry, but haven't found the launcher. Used to launch that rocket and it would punch through the fiberglass insulation in our unfinished attic.
From Lionel


Progress came in the form of finishing the upstairs with bedrooms and a bathroom, but no room for trains. Kind of like old motorcycles, these train "where running when they were put away".

That's some cool stuff, but I have no idea of the value. You could search on ebay for some comparable items.

Suggest either bumping this thread or sending a PM to Joe (curbjumper). He's a great guy, I've stayed at his place and ridden his bikes and whatnot when passing thru Edmonton. Tell him I sent ya.

Today is National Pie Day.

I think I'll bake a few and hoard them.

Unless anyone has a request and wants to pick one up from Uptown this evening...

Powerhouse,
Shoot me your contact info and I can pass it on to a guy here at KARE 11. He's a big time train hobbiest and may be interest in the junk in your trunk.

Seriously, he may be a good guy to talk to.

Them things are a ton of fun. Bimble and Lady Godiva gave my boys a boat load of the smaller scale stuff. We set up a little display for Christmas and all the kids had a blast watching them go round and round.

I've got some of the bigger stuff too but I just don't have the room to leave it set up.
