Standard Catalog of Lionel Trains 1945-1969 (Paperback) By David Doyle. Do You Live for Lionel? There may be other things to live for, but collecting Lionel Trains takes living to a whole new level! The world of postwar Lionel Trains brought countless innovations to the legendary line that helped define the electric toy train, and this book breaks it all down into easy-to-find sections. Divided into locomotives, freight and maintenance of way, passenger cars, accessories, catalogs, and cataloged sets, each section is then broken down further into subcategories such as steam locomotives and flatcars. Once you’ve found your model and style, you’ll discover detailed descriptions unmatched by anything you’ve seen in other train guides! Identifying and assessing your Lionel collection is made easy by the 1,450 detailed color photos, rarity ratings and up-to-date values that fill the pages of this must-have collectible train resource.

Authoritative Guide to Lionel’s Promotional Outfits 1960 - 1969

Authoritative Guide to Lionel’s Promotional Outfits 1960 - 1969 (Paperback) By John W. Schmid (Author), Roger Carp & George J. Schmid (Editor). This book showcases the more than 700 electric train outfits (sometimes called "uncataloged train sets") that Lionel created exclusively for retailers and promotional firms (Sears Roebuck and Co., J. C. Penney, Montgomery Ward, Spiegel, Western Auto, A&P, Quaker Oats, and many other firms) during one of the most important and yet overlooked periods in its history.
spacer
With limited production and distribution, Lionel’s promotional outfits are some of the rarest and most valuable products it ever produced. But because these sets never appeared in a Lionel consumer catalog, their contents – even their existence – remained uncertain for decades – UNTIL NOW!

"This work is one that is unequaled by anything previously available... Anyone with an interest in postwar Lionel should consider this ground breaking book" - Bill Schmeelk, June 2007 issue of LCCA’s The Lion Roars.
