Lionel Toys & Trains
When Lionel first opened its doors, their train sets inspired the country with the “romance of the rails.” The trains began cropping up in homes as a hobby parents could share with their children and decorations that traveled around sparkling Christmas trees. But, as times moved forward, and railroads became less popular, Lionel faced an uncertain future. However, by embracing the excitement of journeys to new places and the possibilities that come with advancing technology, Lionel trains are here to stay!
Our Lionel trains catalog offers everything from Christmas classics to trains with pop culture influences that are perfect for everyone on your list. Read on to see which train is right for you and yours!
