How should I go about selling a 1950s Lionel Train set?

I have a large storage tote full of Lionel train cars, still in their boxes that I'm tired of storing.

This set is from the late 40's & early 50's. The cars are all still in their boxes, and seem (?) like they're in good condition. They were very well cared for and have been stored in a temperature and moisture stable closet for the past decade.
I tried contacting the antique shop that I've sold things to in the past, but they don't deal with this sort of item. My ad on craigslist didn't get any bites. I do not have a built up selling portfolio on ebay, and wouldn't have much idea of the appropriate value. While I don't really want to pay 40% to the services who will list it for me, that seems like the only option. Am I missing some obvious solution?
