How Do You Determine A Lionel Trains Price?

Wondering what the price range is for Lionel trains nowadays? As with most collectors' items, it depends on how old the set is, whether it is in good condition, and a variety of other factors that determine the Lionel trains price.

A Lionel trains price can go up and down with the market's supply and demand, but some rare items keep their high prices going.

A rare Lionel train set can go for as high as several thousand dollars, even more if it is a vintage in mint condition. I even saw a rare set box which is being offered at $15,000. Yep. You read that right. Fifteen thousand bucks for a rare box set.

See? If you've been a good Lionel train collector and you always make sure your sets are in top shape, one day in the futrue you will be benefitting from it.

Of course, I, myself, don't plan to sell what's in my collection now. The sentimental value got higher in the years that I've cared for them, so I doubt that I will have the heart to sell them in the future.
