    This is a joke, right?
    600BIN, no offers allowed....every accessory seems to be broken or major parts missing...track is a mix of 027 and Super 0 with maybe a piece or two of 2-rail windup track...736 missing lead truck....the 490 missing its guts is a MARX....I'm guessing about $75 delivered max...
    "Nothing has been tested but all came from an avid collector who passed away."
    Yeah...the junk box under the railroad. You buy it, it's yours...

    I agree. No way that value is present. I, too, am seeing way too many broken or missing parts, loose parts, etc. This looks like the remnants after the "avid" collector's basement was cleared out.

    Yeah...it's just a 4 wheel truck crane. I used to pick those up (including the red one with stack) for 10-12 bucks.

    Seems a tad steep for what's there and condition.
    Locos are pretty rough paint wise, shell loose (needs a screw..get one and fix it before you list it), transformer filthy and missing parts, switches missing covers, MARX switch controller, cars nicked and scratched, track pretty tarnished and RUSTY, the loco is a late black trucked vertical motor unit, probably a 2383 (least desirable of postwar F units), pickup roller arms stops damaged, signal is rusty, bulb colors faded off, maybe if you had to have it 125 delivered, but I'd go 75 at a train show in that condition and drop the track in the dumpster on the way out.
    Opinion.

    Only if I desperately wanted parts from this junk assortment.

    2018 in pieces with no tender. Marx loco no tender (value=zero), Marx boxcar and broken crane (zero), track no value, 1615 does have a tender but needs a full-on restoration to have any value...something is wrong with the pilot on the 1615 (no photos), class light missing....caboose corner broken (no value), no bidders at his "reserve", what's there, 20-25 tops.
