5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous book. A starting point for the Lionel Hobby, January 1, 2001
This review is from: All Aboard!: The Story of Joshua Lionel Cowen & His Lionel Train Company (Hardcover)
I have had several copies of the previous edition of this book but kept giving them away to neighbors of mine. It is a wonderful look at one of the oldest and most successful toy companies in the world: Lionel Trains. This book covers everything: humble beginnings, postwar boom, near destruction at the hands of famed veteran of the "Red Scare" Roy Cohn to it's present day owners. If you had Lionel trains as a child or have always loved them from afar I cannot tell you how much fun this book is. With stories on all of the most famous cars and the people behind the genius it's an engrossing read.
