Question by moniquew93: a model electric train makes one complete pass around a circular track every 15 seconds….?
a model electric train makes one complete pass around a circular track every 15 seconds. the train’s motor has a resistance of 6.0ohm and is connected to a 70.0V source. How much energy will the train use in 12 complete passes around the track?
Answer by kirchwey This question cannot be answered. Model-train motors don’t draw the huge wattage implied by the voltage and resistance, which = V^2/R = 816.67 W. At running speed the motor would generate a back EMF which would substantially reduce the actual voltage across the internal resistance. See the ref.
EDIT: The input data are not necessarily crazy, just incomplete. What’s crazy is the assumption that the given V is applied across the given R continuously; it actually would only happen momentarily at startup.

Question by : What is the value of a lionel model train ,complete set in box No 14300 9-Unit Freight?
Answer by Stargazer There are two guides published each year that will let you know what the value of your train is
TM’s Lionel Price and Rarity Guide – Volume 1 or Volume 2, depending on the date your Lionel train was manufactured and Greenberg’s Pocket Price Guide to Lionel Trains. To properly value your train you need to classify its condition — and know the serial number and year it was manufactured in.
Question by chosen_isaiah61: How much would a complete Lionel Train set 027 from 1955 be worth?
Answer by legodaylight4449 Do you have any information on this set? The set could be 100 – 1,000 dollars. Also, the condition:
Good: Scratches, small dents, dirty.
Very Good: Few Scratches, exceptionally clean, no dents or rust.
Excellent: Minute scrathes or nicks, no dents or rust
Mint: Brand new, absolutely unmarred with no visible signs of handling, in original box.
Greenburg’s price guides have pricing information that would help you. A trip to your local hobby store or a local train show might also yield some answers. Since I don’t know what you have, I can’t help you.

Question by william: I have an old train set complete with tracks buildings, etc…?
part of it was on display at Ridgmar mall in Ft. Worth Texas back in the late 80’s, and /or early 90’s, I forgot the mans name I bought it from, I would like to know how much it’s worth, it is an electric train set
Answer by topofga The value will be determined by what you have in hand, the condition of what you have, how much of the original packaging exists, if it is functional. All the things that go into valuing a collectible. You may not even have anything collectible.
Best decision is to enjoy it yourself but you can always get approximate values for individual components by checking the sales price on eBay or Craig’s
