This price guide has been produced for the convenience and benefit of
anyone interested in pricing information on electric trains.
The files in this guide are automatically generated from our huge
database. Thus the guide is based on actual sales data that we have
recorded over the past several years from sales in our store, by
mail order, and at train shows. Our system is designed to keep
all sales information, including the actual sales price of what
all items have sold for.
You will notice that there is a ‘date' column, which is the actual
year that the item was sold. It is important to pay attention to this
as more recent dates will be more accurate.
There are drawbacks to our price guide:
1) Data may seem incomplete. For instance there are few issue dates
2) Some items in a series may be omitted. This is because we list
only items that we have handled since we
started recording our sales data. Lists will be updated periodically,
and will naturally fill out as time goes on. On the positive side,
all data is accurate. We do not fill in fictitious prices for items
that we have not sold in the past.
3) Grading is not uniform. We list only those items by grade that
we have actually had in stock and sold.
4) There will be other inconsistencies. This is not a human written
or edited book. This is computer generated. In the future we will
try to conform this information, but this will take some time.
We will continually try to improve this price guide. However please keep in mind
that our business is actually selling
electric trains. We offer this price guide as a service to you.
Improvements will come as time allows.
We will appreciate any suggestions you may have, although some may not
be workable in our system.
Please give us feedback and suggestions. Thank you very much for viewing
