Carole Hussey only discovered the 17th Century ornament was valuable thanks to the Antiques Roadshow.
An old train set found rusting in a garage in a house clearance in Kendal has sold for £6,500 at auction.
The set was rusty and wheels had fallen off the locomotive but the Marklin Gauge 1, Midland Railway attracted bids on the phone and online and eventually went to a buyer from Holland.
David Hunter from 1818 Auctioneers said: “It would have been a top train set when new, the most expensive you could buy in the 1900s.”
It must have been a favourite toy at some time given all its wear and tear."
