Highlights From This Catalog

In this, our tenth and final Lionel Corporation catalog, you'll find a wide selection of Std. and O Gauge tinplate reproductions from the golden years of model railroading; 1900 - 1942. This year's catalog includes an all-new series of 400E Standard Gauge steam locomotives and matching Blue Comet type passenger cars in some never-before-offered paint schemes. Additionally, there are some all-new 214 Standard Gauge box cars sporting the Union Pacific Spirit paint schemes. As always, we invite you to enjoy the childhood pleasures of a time when the toy train was, as Popular Mechanics magazine put it, “The One Toy That Guarantees a Happy Childhood.”
