Like anything else, price depends on condition. Anything that new will not command a price you might be thinking of. Post WW II trains are going for reasonable prices if they are in 100 % mint / like new condition. Any modern era, 11970- 2000, trains aren’t going to command high prices Here’s a reference book:http://www.modeltraincrossing.com/kal8285.htm
You can see if there’s a copy at the local library as well. Sorry to break the bad news.
