DS wants to sell all of his take along thomas trains and the carry cases and the yard thing with the turntablethingy.

He has loads and am not sure whether better to sell as a job lot or individually??

Half of me thinks can;t be arsed to take photos of each oine individually but DH reckons as we are giving the money to DS to spend in musical equipment we should go the extra mile to get as much as we can.

Will be me taking the photos though and listing the bloody things!

I would sell the sets individually, but I wouldn't sell individual trains. I would either include them with the carry cases or sell a job lots of trains.

As somone who trawls ebay endlessly for specific thomas trains - usually rare/unusual or discontinued ones that my son has asked for i would recommend listing any unusual engines you have individually as i have seen the special/ discontinued ones go for alot of money - one train rare train i was watching recently went for £28!! So it might be worth your while to sort out any special engines your son has - good luck!

Good point. I only meant selling the trains together if you have the bog standard ones e.g. Thomas, Percy, James etc.

If you have the Sodor Engine Works I would happily buy it off you smile.

If you are paid up with your subscription you could advertise them on the for sale boards on here. I'm not sure how much interest you'd get, but you would save on ebay fees.

There is a sodor engine works on ebay but it is not mine I am afraid or you could have it.

We have:
Molly & tender
Gordon & Tender
Thomas & Clarabell
Thomas & Annabell
Hose Car
Spot Light Car
Iron Bert
Iron Arry
Emily & Tender
James & Tender
Henry & Tender
Douglas & Tender
Thomas & Tender

2 carry cases and a Tidmouth Shed playset.

Have ended up sticking it all on as a job lot as couldn;t work out whihc engines were good - think most of them are bog standard ones but they are all almost perfect as DS more interested in the buying than the actual playing with (what were we thnking!!)
