Customer Review

on January 5, 2009
I have to admit that I am not a collector of Lionel trains nor do I own a train set (no room at home). Having said that, let me now say that this book is indeed a very detailed history of the Lionel company, focusing mostly on the time period 1900-1960. The narrative is accompanied by a variety of photos, documents, and other items that help tell the story of this legendary company. This book is a good model for other writers to consider, if they are looking to write similar books on other companies.

Personally, I could have passed on the incredible detail given to the first ten years of the Lionel company, but then I am not a collector, just a curious passer-by.

This book is best suited for Lionel collectors. Also for people who are interested in an aspect of the toy manufacturing industry.
