Help identifying model trains

 
  Josh1989 Beginner

Hi new here I have come across these models and have no idea what they are or what they are worth. If anyone can help me out I would appreciate it very much. Looking to indentify then sell.

Thanks in advance Josh

look like N scale. due to the coupler's but turn over the unit and read the brand. afik the two NSW loco's would have some value but the rest is limited.

The Union Pacific train probably worth $50

The low resolution of the photographs doesn't help.

However, they appear to be mass production plastic models of low intrinsic value.

The two diesel locomotives on the left are models of NSWGR 44 class, Lima if these are HO scale, Electrotren if N scale.

The purple locomotive is an E8 lettered for Atlantic Coast Line

The steam locomotive is a GWR Hall class, Hornby if OO gauge

The yellow two unit diesel is an EMD F unit lettered for Union Pacific, no idea of manufacturer.

The two passenger cars are BR standard Mk I cars in Western Region, probably Bachmann if in OO.

You would be looking at tens of dollars, not hundreds or higher.

If you click on the photos you get high resolution, makes identifying easier.

At a guess they are:
As said the two loco on the left, Red and Blue 4480 NSWGR (Aust) 44 class made by Ibertren.
1009, Richmond Fredericksburg and Potomac E8 (USA) made by Life-Like.
Steamy (UK) could be a Graham Farish Castle class .
Union Pacific F7A & B (USA) I would say are Bachmann.
The 3 bogie wagons (USA) are either Bachmann, Life-Like or Model Power more likely Bachmann.
As said the two passenger cars (UK) are BR Mk I cars in Western Region I would say made by Graham Farish.
The 4 wheeler (UK) could be Peco maybe Lima.

As for price, it's the usual story, how much someone is prepared to pay for them. My guess locos $20 -$100, passenger cars $20, freight $5 -$10 if lucky.

Josh 1989 do you have a way of testing the locos, even using a 9v battery?

They are definitely N gauge, as noted above.  You can tell from the couplers.

The green steam loco is an ex GWR Castle Class, 5042 Winchester Castle.  It was made by Graham Farish, who probably also made the two passenger coaches.

The remainder are American, probably made by Bachmann.  The two 44 Class locos would be repaints of American models.


No idea what they are worth, but I don't think that they would be especially valuable.

Thank you all for your input and quick response. I believe they are all N gauge now (been trying to research).

- Yellow union pacific has Bachman underneath
- Green (older one with coal in the back) with great western on the side has Grafar Britain underneath
- The two diesel locomotives with 4481 (red) and 4480 (blue/yellow) on the side both have Bertren Spain underneath
- The silver and blue 1009, Richmond Fredericksburg and Potomac E8 (USA) made by Life-Like.

I try and test these over the weekend with the a battery as someone mentioned. I will probably list them on the site or ebay, not looking to make killing. I came accross these after clearing out an estate and would rather someone be able to use them, then to go to waste.

Thanks again, Josh

As the profit via ebay etc would be so small, maybe instead donate them to a local model railway club. That way they get used as an item if working or used for spare parts remembering some spare parts are hard to get and maybe you thus are helping club members combine your unit with another to get a combined unit running again. Maybe even join the club as that way you will get help with operating or repairing the items.
