1957 Lionel HO Western Pacific set #5703

I DO NOT WANT TO SELL IT.
I have a Lionel HO set #5703 made in 1957. I can't find any info on the
web. It is in the original box with a top that folds up for a display.
Some original sales literature is included. The track was never mounted
on a board. Also, I have all interior boxes but they are missing the
cellophane. Boxes are in good condition. Cars and track are
good-excellent. The set did not come with a transformer and anyways,
that was lost many years ago. Has not been out of box since about
1970.
I looked the value in 1995 and pricing all the cars seperately and I
got a range of 550-600 then. The book didn't have a price for the set.
I know that having the boxes ups the value. This set was made only in
1957 and was $45 new.
Could someone please give me an idea of the value of this now?
REPEAT: I AM NOT SELLING- SENTIMENTAL VALUE
