You'll observe that the long passenger train extends from one display case into the other. It is too long to fit in one showcase alone. It is from the 1970's and each table has it's own lamp that actually works. It is a Swiss high speed train. The two part "O" guage purple/cream train is very old and works perfectly. Some of the "O" guage passenger cars have roofs that open up to show the interior of the car. Can you spot the "Z" zcale trains ?

    Hi back. The green W/#2 on it may be a 346/1. Does it have a set of tail lights mounted on top at one end ? If it is, it is a 346/1B. Also known as a #4007. You did not mention tail lights so I am guessing it is the same wagon without the tail lights on top. Right above the #2 is there a small white and red rectangle with letering in it ? Or is it another green wagon (with rows of 15 windows on each side) with a #2, plain green color and the #2 is located right next to the door windows ? If so, it is a #4022.

    The 346/2 ( also known as a #4008) is red with large clear windows and 5 smaller yellow shadded windows. There are several different types of this wagon with differing values. They started making it in 1951 (4008.1) There is a .2, .3, .10 and .11, all with a slightly different color). I do not know which one you have. Earlier models in excellent condition are worth around $100 to $200. Try finding them on eBay and see what they actually sell for. Later models (1970 - 72 sell for much less as thee are many of them still available on eBay). People list them as rare but they are not that rare.

    The 346/3 ( also known as a #4010) is slightly different with 2 whited windows.
    Earlier models are from 1950s. Again, there are differrent models of this wagon.
    I've seen many of these on eBay and they go for less then $100.00. Not that rare.

    Price is set by rarity, condition (excellent, no rust, missing parts, dents, discolorations, etc...). Original box adds about 20% to the value.

    The information I am providing to you is from a German yearly catalogue. It's the Koll's Preis katalog. Each year Mr. Koll comes up with a very detailed catalogue of Marklin trains. Prices were way higher prior to the stockmarket collapse. Prices have not gone back up that much since but if you can hang on to these for a few years, who knows. If they are not in good condition, they are basically worthless.

    If you wish to email me some clear photos I could try to be more specific.

    Anyway, I hope this helps.
    I have these wagons in my collection and tonight I will add a few more photos and you will see them there.
    Kind regards.
