    Folks -
    Have some friends in town who acquired a Lionel NYC "Grand Central Express" set that includes "two FT locomotives" and some passenger cars, along with a separate "Grand Central Terminal" building.

    They're looking for good places to potentially sell it, outside of either eBay or Craig's List. Any recommendations?

    Best Regards,

    Facebook marketplace, its free and local people see it as well as people all around the continent. I have bought some items on there from Nova Scotia. Also facebook has several Lionel O toy train pages for collectors to buy and sell.

    Thanks, Paul - since they are friends with my wife on Facebook as well, I think that'll be a good, logical next step. Appreciate the lead.

    Just caught up on the 1291 thread - things are looking great.

    Best Regards,

    Another option is the O Gauge Railroading Forum https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com
    They have a dedicated For Sale forum and the Grand Central Terminals usually sell readily if priced right. The original larger ones sell for more, as opposed to the smaller later ones.

    Thanks for that lead, Gregg. I'll pass that one along as well - many thanks.
