Very nice! I suggest checking Gunbroker for sold examples to see what the market is paying these days. I paid $300 for this one about 5 years ago and felt I got a good deal:

Default Lithgow trainer

I second the motion by smle-man of checking for comparable sales. Since your trainer is a "put together" by someone other than Lithgow or BSA, it would probably be worth a little less than a "correct" one, but it is attractive and clean, and if it shoots well, someone may go for it at a higher value.
The original prefix for a 1912 BSA SMLE was "U" or "V", so the "T" definately ties it to JJCo.
