If they pull your trains, they're worth far more than a piece of string!
As I recall, I've seen the basic (Bev-Bel) ones with the wider Athearn
bodies on E-Bay and at train shows selling for 20-30 dollars. A better
one with a Front Range body and corrected fuel/air tanks might go quite
a bit higher. I've invested about $40-50 so far in one like that I'm
working on.

I have two ho scale redbirds that I bought over 30 years ago. They fit
Athearn gp 9 frames they both were numbered 520 but I changed one to
521. They
are in excellent shape are they worth anything?
