An exhilarating, photo-filled journey through the history of America's favorite toy trains, "Lionel Legacy" whisks readers through more than a century of Lionel. Veteran hobby historian and author Robert Schleicher conducts us all the way back to Joshua Lionel Cohen's 1902 'electric cheese box' - the train that started everything - right up to the high-tech, meticulously detailed Lionel's of today, and the details of FasTrack lines that boosted Lionel sales by over 40 per cent in 2006!This thoroughly entertaining book features an astonishing variety of Lionel's - the famous and the fascinatingly rare-steam and diesel engines, freight and passenger cars, action accessories and cars, track and transformers. Lavishly illustrated with modern color photography, vintage advertising, and historic images of the 'real' prototype trains, "Lionel Legacy" charts the course of what is arguably America's most-enduring toy-industry icon, and will certainly appeal to all model train enthusiasts, especially the 2000 members of the Lionel Collectors Club UK.
