I would like to sell, but don' know how to value this set. It was my childhood toy, and someone should enjoy it. Can anyone help?
Hello. Can you list the car #'s? My reference shows a FIVE-car set.
From what I have in the Lionel set book your train should a Rio Grand F-3 A - B units, a 3562-75 operating barrel car , a 3530 operating generator car, a 3444 animated gondola car, a6464-525 Minneapolis & St. Louis boxcar, and a 6657 illuminated Rio Grand sp-type caboose. Condition and if you have all of the boxes makes a difference in the set price.($,3000 and up)
If you want the price of each item this is what it is worth depends on condition and if you have the boxes
2379 Powered F-3 A unite & the 2379C B unpowered united $650 to $1170
The 3562-75 barrel car $40 to $75
The 3530 generator car $65 to $165
The 3444 gondols car $$45 to $80
the 6464-525 boxcar if it is the red one with white lettering $$32 to $68 if it is the maroon car with white lettering $530
the 6657 Rio Grand caboose $47 to $$160
Hope this helps but remember that condition and boxes makes a difference in what they are worth.
