Welcome to my site to buy, sell and trade collectible Lionel HO trains that were produced from 1957 through  1967.  From time to time other vintage HO items from American Flyer/Gilbert, Varney, Revell, Marx, AHM, and Mantua/Tyco will be offered.  Since much of the inventory is used, read the item descriptions very carefully.
