Hello everyone, new here. Have used Brickset as a resource for a few years now, though I am a fairly casual AFOL.
Wanted to turn to the expertise of this community, and I hope this is allowed (read the rules so I think I'm okay, but please remove if this is not appropriate to you).
I randomly came across someone who has a new, sealed 113-2 Motorized Train set (1966) and a sealed 002-1 Motor Pak (1965) as well. As you would imagine, I am very excited by the collector's opportunity here but I have no idea whatsoever the value of these sets. The boxes are in near perfect shape.
Would love to hear your thoughts on the potential value of what I've found and how much I should expect to land on paying.
Thanks in advance!

On BL, a used set complete recently sold for $475 U.S.. There's a start for you. There's no real way to tell exactly what it's worth but you can gauge the desirability of it from the BL sales value.
The 002 motor is relatively common so it will be worth considerably less.
Most of the parts seem very common, selling for pennies. The exception are the printed pieces with the destinations - those seem to sell for a few dollars each.
The current listings on BL for #113-2 are for incomplete sets with just 1 of each of the wagons, but those *do* include all the printed parts. Getting both would set you back USD 75.
So as it's easy to piece this set together, the question to ask is how much a sealed box is worth to you on top of the loose parts price?
You may want to put it on eBay at a high 'Buy it Now and you may get some offers.
Besides the price lists, there are also 73 chapters on LEGO sets and early parts, as well as almost anything you can think of dealing with LEGO, totaling over 2000 pages.

P.S. The 113 Train of 1966 comes as a 402 piece set sold in the USA, a 415 piece set sold in Canada, and a 372 piece set sold in Europe/Asia/Australia.
