For more than 100 years, Lionel Trains have captured the hearts and stirred the imaginations of young and old. Like the mighty locomotives and dynamic railroads they represent, Lionel trains are packed with animation and excitement. That tradition is alive and well today... but this isn’t your grandfather’s Lionel. Realistic sounds, interactive controls, light, smoke, speed, action are all packed into the most realistic models ever produced. Not only are today’s trains fun, they are at the core of a hobby that the entire family can share and enjoy for a lifetime.
