Hello Ian and welcome to the forum. I wish it was under different circumstances that you are asking questions.

With regards to the collection I 2nd the advice about ebay. I also model in N gauge and I find that from time to time certain models seem to crop up more and when I see a model I want to sell on there I normally watch the item and also make checks to see if anyone else is selling the same as well.

If there is something you find that you cannot find on ebay always make sure there are no limited edition slips in the packaging with the loco as this does seem to bring good prices.

On average I've found when selling british locos seem to go for around between 26.00 upwards. I've also found the more rare the loco the better price it brings. An example is a garter blue graham farish mallard i sold for a friend.
He only paid 50.00 for it and it eventually went for over 120.00 to a buyer from overseas.

The rule of thumb I've also found is that with all the costs involved in using ebay you normally find that if you take the price of 1 loco and basically put that down as a loss as that will normally cover the costs of listing a few items on ebay.

If you need any further help don't hesitate to contact me by Personal Message and I will try and help as best I can.
