Question by Hand puppet pet: While anchored off the French Riviera in the 50’s there was a train that looked like a model train going in?
and out of the surrounding mountain range. It reminded me of Christmas and the way that Dads brought home toy Lionel sets not for their son to play with but for them, my question is do you think it was mainly for them to use to satisfy that need to never really grow up?

Have you tried contacting the local Train club? Or you could check here:http://www.traincity.com/price_guide/plli.html

Personally I’d keep them. I have a 1958 Lionel Trolley complete in the original box with instructions. The last time I checked it was worth over $ 200.
