Prewar Lionel Trains


I sold all my extra Lionel trains, but I left this page up for identification purposes. I don't really collect antique Lionel trains, but I have a few that I have restored and operate (play with). I started out restoring a Lionel Junior set that my Dad received in 1934 and added a few pieces here and there. Questions, comments, let me know.
