Hello,*Just thought I
Just thought I would say welcome to model railroading!* Those trains were around when I was first in model railroading, I was gone for quite a while, but have been back for three years or so (time flies...).
I can't help you directly with your question, but maybe one of the other guys will chip in.

Goodness, I got my start in
Goodness, I got my start in N scale with an Aurora Postage Stamp set, back about 1970.* They do have some collector value.* That's the good news.* You have something others would treasure.* And I suspect they will still run just fine.* But they won't hold a candle to todays N scale engines.* The wheels on the rolling stock will be what is now mockingly called &quot;pie cutters&quot; because of the depth of the flange.* As a starter set, I'm sure they are fine.* Two sets for $140 ain't all that bad.* Each would come with a transformer and some track.* A top of the line loco can set you back almost that much, well closer to $100 and on ebay considerably less used.* I still have a few of my original postage stamp cars - I just changed the wheels and trucks under them to MT's.*** Have fun with them, and who knows, in a few years you may be able to sell one of the sets for what you paid for the pair and get all your money back.* &#160;
