One of our valued readers has a 70 year old train set for sale… Anyone interested?
Jim had this to say about the set…
“I have a train set that is 70 years old. It consists of the engine, tender, plus 6 extra cars and the original transformer. I ran the set on Lionel 027 gauge. My dad bought the set for me when I was 1 year old. Mom always said he had more fun than me, but at one year old my attention span was very short. The transformer says Louis Mark out of New York.
I have no idea how much the set is worth. I would prefer to sell the complete set instead of individual items. The condition of all the items is good with some rust on the bottom of the cars. The electric switching tower, the semephores and the station have very little rust. I think the pictures show the markings and condition of each item. 70 years of exposure will take its toll but the set is in pretty good condition. If a buyer wants to get in touch with me they can call me at 262-784-3049, e-mail me at jturczyn’at’wi.rr.com (replace ‘at’ with @).
