After reading the comments on the five questions thread, I want to give you a bit to think about. What is likely to happen to your trains after you die? There are 2 considerations: do you care what happens to what you have carefully collected or constructed? will your family get (at least) proper monetary value from them? A lady asked her ex-husband's son what had happened to his dad's Lionel after he died. "Those old trains? I gave them to the Salvation Army". A basement full. After a friend of his died, one modeller was given a bag of what had been superdetailed locomotives and cars. The trains had been "looked after" by someone and the American ones taken off and sold, but the English ones were dumped in the bag because they couldn't identify them and given to an English modeller. It was heatbreaking, apparently. There are a few more stories, but you get the idea. You should have someone that you trust who can tell your family how to dispose of your equipment. Your family should have an idea of what its worth.
