Let me start by saying I know nothing about railroading... When cleaning out my Father's home last year, I found 2 Akane locomotives complete with orig boxes and they look unused. I remember my Father always keeping these stored away and I do not remember him ever using them when he had his layout when I was a child.
Anyway, I am wondering if they have any value as I have been storing them for over a year now and have no interest in them -- other than they were valuable to my Father. The first one is an Akane DM & IR 2-8-8-4 class M-4 (unpainted ready to run). It is a black color and the looks perfect. The coal tender (?) has never been removed from the packaging. The second one is a Akane U.S.R.A. 2-6-6-2 and is an unpainted brass color. Also in perfect condition.
Could anyone suggest a value for these and are they something that are rare or wanted so I can decide want to do with them. Thanks everyone in advance for your help.
