    Oh wow, now I feel 10 years old. I played so much with that set, changing the train etc. Amazing to see it still running, the electric tracks from mine have gone all rusty.

    The average sale price on Ebay on the 7815 is between $85 and $125 US depending on conditon and whether it has a box and instructions.
  • smokingtommysmokingtommy Member Posts: 24
    yes both in boxes ( not bad condition )and both in good order (162 no manual )

    after making up the 7740 i have set about making the rest of the trains sets i have , i have to be honest id love to get it all layed out again. With the points ,signals, stations etc. I bet it would be some sight :-)

    linky to the list

    Ahh, 918 and 6930, the only 2 space sets I've ever owned. Nice to see them there.

    Interesting list of collectibles on that Bricklist, although if you're serious about selling you'll need to include information regarding box, instructions, condition etc. for each item.
  • smokingtommysmokingtommy Member Posts: 24
    yes i understand this and at the moment it is a ongoing list and i will update at the end with all information. I have about 200 or more sets to make up this is a really big job.
    I may not be selling any thing at the moment until i have all sets done. So all i can say at the moment is watch this list and if interested in any set please pm me and i will give more info and pics

    Si_Dorking_Surrey_UK thank you for linking
