I have a 1976 Lionel Train Set Model I am trying to value?

Question by : I have a 1976 Lionel Train Set Model I am trying to value?
This train set was found in a storage unit that defaulted and I have no idea what it is even remotely worth. This is “The Black River Freight” model 6-1662. From what I have read this was only produced in 1976. Everything looks to be there with the exception of a few peices of track. I am having a garage sale this weekend and am curious if this is an item that should be sold or if it has value should it be auctioned off. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Try looking for “The Standard Catalog Of Lionel Trains, 1970-2000” at your library. It’s got all the price information for sets, cars, anything that Lionel made in that era.

I have a vintage 1976 “The Black River Freight” Lionel Train Set. It is in its original box, has original instruction sheets, and cardboard scenery pieces.

I assume it’s been used or you would say never opened or never used. In good condition I would have said it could bring upwards of $ 750-1000 but like anything else you need to find a buyer, not easy right now.

There are many reasons why a model engine does not work especially on a model railway which has not been used for a while.

The first thing to do is to ensure that there is power at the rails and this can be done by using a small 12volt test lamp or test meter. You do of course have to turn on the controller. On more complicated tracks it is best to connect where the power leads connect to the tracks as some sections may be switched of due to the way points(switches) are set.

The locomotive my fail for many minor reasons and it will usually be necessary to remove the powered chassis from the engine or tender.

Things to check are continuity from the wheels to the brush gear. This may be more difficult on engines fitted with DCC as you will have so many connections to play with and indiscriminate
use of the test meter may damage the DCC chip.

It is possible that if you repeat your question giving the description of the model involved that some one can give specific instructions.
