The first step in finding the value of anything old is to do some extensive research on the internet; you will usually find most of the information you need here. If you cannot find any information of your product, consider taking the item to an antique dealer or appraiser. Keep in mind appraisers will charge you a small fee.

Old Lionel train sets can sell from the hundreds all the way to the tens of thousands of dollars. The company was founded in 1900 and early models are expensive.

You should find a local hobby shop that sells trains and take them in and get them appraised, they will be able to give you a ball park figure.

The value of any old train sets depend on just a few factors. The first factor is age and as always the older the more value. The next is condition and the better the look the better the value. Hope this helps.
