Lionel Trains were first presented to the general public in the year 1900. The most popular items are toy trains and model railroads. They have captured the hearts and stirred the imaginations of young and old because of their attention to detail, solidly built construction and authenticity. Realistic sounds, interactive controls, light, smoke, speed, action are all packed into the most realistic models ever produced.
Lionel trains has different scales, but they are best known for O scale trains. O scale is 1:48, which is twice as large as ‘HO’ scale (half of ‘O’). Lionel G-gauge scale train set is plastic made while the O-gauge scale train is made of metal. O-gauge train has more accurate details than the O-gauge train, and the price is much more higher.
You can extend the track, or add trestles, bridges, scenery to the train sets. They are often given as gifts on holidays and can easily become a family heirloom over time.
