Format: Paperback
Like Mr. Doyles other new Lionel train guide for post war trains, the Collector's Guide to Prewar Lionel Trains, 1900-1942 is prove to be an important resource for both the buyer and seller of antique Lionel train sets. Containing information on virtually every toy train made by Lionel between 1900 and 1942, the book will prove to be a gold mine of information. However I found two of the appendices at the end of the book to be of particular value. Appendix I, Awakening Sleeping Toys and Appendix II, Setting Up Your Train each contain information important to the collector. There is also a small chapter on Lionel Catalogs and Paper Products and another chapter devoted to Accessories, Toys and Novelties.

All in all this is one you'll want to keep close.

I am new to collecting Pre War Trains and this guide helps with discovering new items and allows you to have a better idea of the value. Would like more information on the cars but I am sure other books have that.

Excellent Guide for the Lionel Collector. Will be buying the Postwar version soon. Loved the additional information about how to care for trains, etc at the end.

Informative. Nice pictures. Just enough details about each train set for the novice collector. Worth the price paid for it.
