I found these in an attic of a house I was cleaning, I know nothing about these except they are old. Any value here, thanks so much

Hello Mr Jamie,


So sorry, the models that you have found are quite old.  They may be of interest to a collector in Japan, but probably not to anyone here who is not a collector.  What you have is 7 of a 12 car Shinkansen 200 Organization "E" set.  You can read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinkansen_200_Series


Tomix produced this model between 1982 and 1985.  So the cars you have are around 30 years old.


Each car is worth around ¥800 or USD $8.  The motor car, if you have it, is worth around USD $35. I include two example on Yahoo Japan below.  I could find no more.




Thus, if you don't have the motor car, my estimate of the value is $50-$70.  Add $30 if you have the motor car.


If you had the full 12 cars in excellent condition with a working motor car you could fetch $200.


I hope this helps.


Perhaps if we know your general location ie: Country and State, then someone here might purchase them from you.

So sorry, but the vendor is somewhat misguided or has made a mistake entering the price.  Tomix track 1002 is worthless to anyone with a layout less than 20 years old as the track has the distinctive yellow colour of ballast, rather than the grey currently used.  I have already discussed the value of the cars in detail.


For such a price I would expect two bottles of Jack Walker Blue Label 700ml to be included.
