Are old Hornby trains valuable?

Hornby train sets must be complete and in pristine boxed condition to reach top prices. Locomotives or rolling stock must be complete with all parts and undamaged, and they will be worth a higher price if boxed. If trains are in poor condition then they may only be fit for use as a source of spare parts.
