Hi.joel not me but my neighbour and good friend has a lionel set that he has owned since he was seven years old. He will be be seventy next january and still runs it once a month at the local model railway society meet. it was sent over to him as a gift from an uncle .It must have inspired him at that young age as he is a accomplished model engineer with many five inch locomotives and smaller gauge under his belt.
best regards and many thanks for sharing your knowledge.

They are fun, I still have my original Lionel from 1949. A close friend of mine recently passed away and he had a massive 60 year collection of Lionel dating from 1900 thry 2000 era which I am slowly selling off for the family. I gave up interest in Lionel in the early 50's to concentrate my interests in Army Vehicles and Military Aircraft of th 40's and later.

I will be offering a few pieces here and there of Pre War Standard Gauge and smaller locomotives and rolling stock, and a few Post War O Gauge Locos. All are in mint condition, All one has to do is contact me to go over what I have. These are not the typical Christmas gift variety.

I know RobL is a big-time Lionel collector, you might want to contact him direct if he hasn’t seen this already.
