How do I price and/or sell a Marklin Train set purchased in Germany in the 1950's? There are two different engine cars, passenger and freight cars, etc.; all metal with [24] 7" straight tracks, [24] 7" curved tracks, [4] short curved and [4] short straight tracks, [2] switch tracks, a Marklin 280 A 110V switch box, a railroad crossing track, etc.

Should I submit photos to this forum and is there another website to find out the value of what I have?

it highly depends on whats in it, marklin was sold a lot so most older models aren't worth much, but there are some that have gotten quite rare, those can cost quite a lot.

to price it you should look around and see what prices you see everything in it for.
but because of how much the prices can vary it's hard to give a more accurate price without knowing what is actually in the set.
