One of the toys that most means Christmas to young boys and girls is the train set. It still ranks among the most asked-for gifts. A bidder with lots to spend bought this train set at a recent Noel Barrett auction. It's an O-gauge Royal Blue Limited passenger train set, made around 1906 by Marklin, a German toy company. It has a 13-inch steam locomotive, a four-wheel tender with rear compartment and four 6 1/2-inch cars with hinged roofs. Price: $36,300.Search for more prices on toy trains and accessories on
