Weirder than you think.

comment Where to find older sets (eg. Classic Space)?
The problem is that the things sold at garage sales or whatever varies from place to place and from month to month. Even the types of outlet varies considerably by geography. New Zealanders tend to prefer Trade Me over eBay, for example. Your best bet is probably to ask around locally, or use the big international sites like BrickLink.

BTW: classic-space.com/forum may be a useful resource.

Welcome to Brick Answers. Unfortunately, I don't think we can answer your question as it stands: it isn't really a question with a specific answer, so it isn't a great fit for this site. Moreover, I'm not sure how other people's answers to this question could help you find what you're looking for? That said, if you can rephrase / expand on your question so that it is a better fit for the site, we'll do what we can to help.

comment Can anyone identify this piece for me?
+1: In this case you're quite right. In general, however, it is worth noting that LEGO isn't always marked as such (Minitalia components, for example), and that the list on Brickset isn't quite definitive.

comment How can the 12v Train 7823 Container Depot be used to load container ships as per Lego Catalogue
Perhaps it is a translation issue? Does anyone have a non-English copy of the same catalogue? Is the wording any different?

comment How can you estimate the value of a LEGO collection?
Whilst this is useful information in its own right (I must admit I had no idea ths facility existed), you should be aware that the RRP of a set and its resale value can be quite different. An extreme exmple is 10179-1: Millennium Falcon. Its RRP was $500, but it can go for several times that on the second hand market (the cheapest sealed one on Bricklink is offered for about $1,700 a I write. No guarantee it will sell at that price, but still).

Do the teeth mesh properly with LEGO gears? If not, it is not LEGO.
