You have to have this book if you are in the market for old Lionel stuff, especially when shopping on Ebay. Things that many put 'vintage or rare' on in an ad, are not. Spend a few bucks here with Greenberg's, don't be a sucker on overpriced Lionel, and save a lot in the long run.
It's a must-have if you buy, sell, or simply want an idea of the value of your Lionel items. I run a train repair business, and buy an new copy every year so that I can give my customers an idea on what their trains/accessories are worth.
It was somewhat useful. Too bad it only gives estimates for excellent to mint condition trains. Most hobbyists actually use them. Many of us probably have good to very good condition equipment, thus, this book still leaves us guessing regarding the likely value of our stuff.
I think the pricing shown is not actual resale. Most pricing to high. From long time train guy, 60 plus years.
My husband has all his train items from the 50's - we're thrilled to find out one piece is worth between 600 - 1200 dollars!!!!!!!
I purchased this for my husband. We noticed a lot of the guys had it at the auctions buying trains, so he had to have it.. It's really come in handy for him making train purchases!!
It is a comprehensive book listing thousands of entries. I found a 2-3% error rate on items that were either missing or wrong.Overall a great not a great job.
Purchased for neighbor who has purchased Lionel products since 1960....he was thrilled to learn what a valuable collection he has!
