Lionel Trains was founded in New York City in 1900 by Joshua Lionel Cowen. At that point, America was just beginning its love affair with the rails. Since then, the company has had many ups and downs, but it is among the most well-known of any model train brands. Over the years, they have also partnered with many companies like NASCAR, Warner Bros., Crayola, Coca-Cola, John Deere and many others. Double Play Hobby Consignments carries a wide range of Lionel Trains and other related products, available both in store as well as online. See our complete inventory of Lionel Trains here.
