1930's-40's Marx 500 Army Supply Train

1950's Marx 666 Army train

A rather hard to find variation of the common Marx 666 locomotive!

Lionel 736 steam locomotive with 2046W tender

This Berkshire began production in 1950 and was modeled after a real Boston & Albany locomotive.  The 736, with the 773 Hudson and the 746 Norfolk & Western, are considered the finest Lionel offered.


"The General" by Lionel



The Lionel Space Race!
The 1950's-60's were the years of The Great Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union.  Space related toys were very popular and Lionel joined in!

Lionel's vision of the Mercury project.




Postwar Lionel Army switcher with missile launcher & tranport


The Lionel Marine Corps set
The USMC set was produced in 1958-59 and included a Cannon Car made on the scale of a 16 inch Battleship gun!  Six flatcars with USMC vehicles were available as well. A matching blue USMC Caboose or green rescue caboose followed.

Postwar Lionel 45 USMC missile car



The Lionel Navy set
The Lionel 224 Alcoa AB Navy diesel pair was destined to recieve little interest when it was produced in 1960 making it a tough pair to find in good condition today.  A wide variety of flatcars could be pulled by these deisels to include a helicopter, submarine, and missile.  A great part of the Lionel Space & Military series.
