Reply to "seeking input regarding values - mostly O tinplate"

Ives1122 is basically correct about the original items. The 251E you might be low on however, without photos it's very difficult. You mention surface rust but that has varying levels. Namely if it'll clean up or not. Sooner or later the market for original junkers is gonna dry up and original parts will be at premium.

Thanks for your reply, and sorry that I don't have good pics - I feel bad, because that's the first thing I would ask for.

On all of the O-gauge items, for lack of a better description, it looks like a bad case of acne all over the pieces.  Not horrible, but it won't clean up either.  A bit too much to run them without a lot of cleanup.  If these were rare items, they might justify cleanup; as common items, they're probably candidates for restoration.
