You're living under a gold mine. Some people will pay a lot of money for Hornby Dublo, especially if it's in good condition, and if it's in it's original boxes, they'll go weak at the knees.
These took some finding, in the huge amount of clutter that lives in my attic. The original boxes aren't in very good condition any more...

Even so, if we ever get back to normality, you should take everything to a model railway exhibition and look around for dealers selling stuff of a similar vintage stuff to see what they think. Meanwhile browse eBay:

Well, as usual I have come up with a solution.

Why not send both kits, in their current state, to me and I will hawk them around the Annual Bonavista Hornby-Dublo fair, being held quite close to my house?

You could set a reserve price on both kits and I would make sure that the prospective purchaser paid up promptly.
I would send you the cash the same day via Interac eTransfer!(1)

"When", I hear you ask, "is the Bonavista Annual Hornby-Dublo fair to be held?".
"Well", I answer, "how quickly can you get the two kits to me?".

Sincerely, as ever
Chris
(1)Of course, "the same day" might well be 3am or 4am your local time the next day.

That is such a kind offer Chris. I have placed the two kits in a large plastic box near my front door, ready for the courier when they arrive to collect them.

Thank you, Stuart; very kind of you.
However, there is such a thing as being TOO kind:-

Please re-assure me that you did NOT over-tip the rubbish men last Christmas, and that today is not Garbage day.
Thanks
Chris
