Its a struggle to sell Lima locomotives at the moment.

Visit any large model railway show and just see the boxes of Lima stuff piled high on trade stands and priced up at £25 to £30. Even at these prices nobody seems to buy so stock remains with the trader.

In terms of Ebay right now as its the middle of the summer I would be pesimistic and you should take about £5 off the guide prices indicated above.

Start the sales at the lowest prices you will accept, don't set a reserve, and see if there are any takers.

I have observed a joker trying to sell recent Lima production stuff at £60-£70 in mint unused condition. He claims a rare opportunity to aquire etc etc. Dream on.

Trade prices for Lima locomotives are £15-£20 so I will offer £130 for the 7 and you pay the shipping. Firm offer and no Ebay hassle!

Happy modelling
