    My Dad was kind of a S Gage collector. He had a new GG1 and I have been trying to find out some things about it and what it might be worth. I model in N so it is a little big but might look OK along with my Pony Express set.

    Was the GG1 made by American Models? Has it been run? Does it still have the box? I don't recall any other GG1's being made other than those from American Models. Check their web site to see what one brand new brings and go from there.

    Hope this helps.

    Hmm. Yes. That's the only one I know about in S scale.

    See how we are trying to find out what trains are worth. What would a 59 UP Pony Express set in the box with all of the cars in their boxes and the track and transformer still in the box be worth?

    oldscout,

    I don't know anything about AF trains for value or which pieces are rare. Someone who collects them would be able to answer that question. There are books that cover nothing but that kind of information and list numbers of engines, cars, train sets and accessories. Greenburg's guide to AF trains would answer that question. I think that's the name of the book. The hobby shop in Denver could put you in contact with someone if no one in the shop could answer your question. I'm sure there are members of TCA and TTOS in Colorado willing to talk to you.

    Greg

    As I noted in the other topic about the UP set, condition. As much as it might be desired by a collector, if the condition is not there value will not be, either.
