Hi the following below are three places I found online whoever I do not know if any are buying currently, These shops may be able to help you by asking if they know of anyone that does buy vintage/antique train sets. These are good pieces however it will take a collector to buy them. Selling to dealers you would see an actual price of 1/3 to 1/2 the stated value also as they wish to ake a profit too from their purchases.
