Above: Appraiser Noel Barrett (right) tells the owner it's fitting to find a "choo-choo" at the Chattanooga ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event. This lovingly preserved set, made by the Lionel company and given to the owner's father for his first Christmas in 1930, could carry home a value of $2,500-$3,000.

Specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the nation travel throughout the United States offering free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras watch as owners recount tales of family heirlooms, yard sale bargains and long-neglected items salvaged from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths about these finds.
