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. 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.
