Having read this conversation, it occurs tome that this group is the place to seek some advice. I have pieces of a 1680 that was abit messed up when I got it. I have these pieces
- boiler with all fixtures but only one handrail. I made a replacement handrail with #14 brass wire,but the curves are not perfect.
- traing truck
- motor that had a messed up reverse unit. I removed the pieces and figured out how to wire it to run forwrd only.
My question is what is the best way to realize whatever is the value of these itemss. I'm supposin there are folks who could use them.
You could post pictures of them on the for sale section of the forum, with a price. Or you could list them on ebay.
I would suggest ebay with a low starting price and then just let them go. I recently listed a complete hudson and tender at $9.99 and let it go. People want parts, but it is hard to say what someone would pay for your parts.
