Question by Blondie: The electric dog fences, do you HAVE to bury the fence or can it be just left on the ground?
I’m thinking of buying an electric dog fence which trains the dog to stay within a boundry as he keeps running out on the road but we have a concrete driveway and all the fences say to bury the wire. Is it a must????

Answer by mountain gal
If this is the real Lionel, with the real metal cars and
all the track and switches, just put it up for sale
on ebay and sell to the highest bidder. I can’t name
any dollar amount but a collector would go nuts for
that.

Answer by VinceHerman
Hi s_s_o_h,

Pictures will help.
Better description will help.
What wear and tear?
Train only? Cars? Track? Accessories?
Does it have the original box? What condition is the box in.

Condition and completeness are big factors in valuation, and you need to provide that.

photobucket.com/ provides free image hosting. Get a digital camera, take some well lit pictures of the entire collection, and all of the parts. If there is any wear or missing pieces, make sure to have pictures that include those details. Post links to the online photos here as additional information, and include as much description of your set as you can.

Then we can give an accurate estimate for you.
