Lionel catalog recommendations
« on: December 28, 2021, 08:17:29 pm »
Hello all. Can anyone recommend a catalog or book that shows the complete sets of prewar Lionel standard gauge? Trying to go through my grandfather’s collection and see what locomotives went with the sets. Thank you.

Try this, Josh:

Go to any search engine and type in something like 1938 Lionel train catalog. You'll find that most old train catalogs are published for free online.

I should point out that identical cars (although painted differently) appeared in different sets, and some cars were manufactured for several years.
