    I have a group of NIB N Scale Collector cars. I don't know if they are worth anything anymore?
    I have not been active in N Scale for a few years and have not kept up with prices.
    I tried to look on E Bay and either found cars with very high prices that weren't selling or no info.
    I have the following:
    Midway Magic
    Northern Mariana Islands
    Guam
    Midway Islands
    American Samoa
    US Virgin Islands
    Puerto R
    L&N 1891
    CGAX 1876
    OLI 1972 Troop Kitchen
    B.A.R. 5157

    Canadian Beer Car #3 Pacific Scale Rail Special Run

    MT Canada set with all cars A & B unit, and Caboose.

    Opinions?

    You find the right buyer, those us territory ones are probably worth something as a lot. I’m sure someone out there is looking for them, or most of them, but it isn’t me!

    The N Scale Enthusiast site has the results of their auctions posted covering the past two years.
    You can look through them to see if any of those cars have been sold and at what prices:
    https://www.nscaleenthusiast.com/NSE_Archives.htm

    A Northern Mariana Islands car recently sold for $44.
    Three Guam cars sold this year for between $24 and $35.
    Two American Samoa cars sold this year for between $15 and $18.
    Three US Virgin Islands cars sold this year for between $23 and $30.
    Two Puerto Rico cars sold this year for between $26 and $36.
    ...and so on.

    And all except the Northern Mariana Islands car were therefore sold for under the original purchase price... after eBay fees, the NMI car did too.
