Model Railroads/Postage stamp bus systems
Wondering what the prices would be on a copy right 1968 Aurora bus system in the box( damaged but still clear face) with blue grey hound all pieces complete with color manual. Also have a red unmarked bus, and 4 sets of bus by pass #4414, 1 set of curve track #4412, 2 sets of bus bypass electric #4413, and 1 set straight track #4411. I have attached a picture of the main set with extra red bus and showing some box damage. Happy to send more pictures if needed. Thanks for your time.
The bus system was a cool item for sure. Imported from Faller of West Germany. As long as the set contains all pieces especially the track connecting pins then it's value ranges from $100-150. The red busses usually go for $40-50. You can easily check their operation by holding a 9 volt battery to the pick-up shoes. The 4414 are called intersections and figure around $25 a box if sealed (with tape, these were never shrink wrapped)with good boxes, a little less if used. The straight and curved 4411 and 4412 figure around $15-20 a box. The bypass is the most desirable so about $30 a box is usual. These items are popular with collectors so condition always plays a big part in the prices. Hope this helps and let me know if I can help any further.
