    I'm in the middle of a house move and have found a box of model trains (Lots of engines, carriages, not so much tracks and shit) in my cellar that used to belong to my uncle who passed about 5 years ago. The majority are boxed and look brand new and they are from the late 70's to early 80's.

    Now i know that many of you are experts in, lets say, areas of knowledge that the average man does not have and wondered if any of you had any inclination as to where would be a good place to get the collection valued as i want to sell it. I've tried going through google linkages but there's too much bollocks to go through and it gets boring fucking quickly.

    So, short of joining http://www.hornby.com/forums/, I thought i'd see if any of you fine people can help me.
