Highlights From This Catalog

In this, our seventh Lionel Corporation catalog, we offer Lionel’s 1920s renditions of the newest electric power on American rails, along with traditional steamers and several models from Lionel’s first decade of production. And for the first time in more than 80 years, we’re excited to announce new body styles in the 200 series freight cars, Lionel’s largest and most elaborate Standard Gauge freighters. Beginning on page 36, you’ll find covered gondolas, covered hoppers, two- and three-dome tank cars, flat cars with wheel loads and bay window cabooses offered for the first time anywhere. 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.”
