  • Need help and advice

    Am new to buying used trains and need help and advice on a possible purchase. Would like to know a reasonable, fair price to expect to pay for a MTH Railking Strasburg #89 3-Rail 4-4-0 Steam Engine (2005, volume 1 catalogue #20-3172-1 with an original suggested retail price of $699.95) with 3 hours run time and fully functional. Also for a MTH 5-car 70" Madison Passenger Set: Strasburg RR (2005, vol.1 cat. #20-4072 with a SRP of $399.95). The 5 car set would be a separate purchase from the steam engine. I know by reading past forum posts that 50% of original cost is generally accepted as price to be expected; but are there reasons or instances (i.e. roadname, type of item, etc.) when an item's fair price/value would command prices exceeding that 50% threshold? Anyone think that is the situation for these two items? Thank you everyone for your enlightening feedback

    Do you use ebay? There is a search feature that you can use to see how much others have paid.
