New Haven EP5 loco in green, not the usual orange-black-white paint scheme. May have been custom painted.
Estate sale, owner was a model train collector and repairer.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a nice toy locomotive. Such vintage toys trains are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
It is a nice well kept vintage Lionel New Haven locomotive and appears to be in very good condition. I don't know if you have the original box but this would increase the sales value of your train. As it may have been custom made the appraisal is slightly difficult however it may surprise in a positive way if sold at auction.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online vintage toys auction, where I believe the Lionel train has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the Lionel New Haven locomotive. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
