When’s The Last Time You Bought A New Lionel Train?

April 24th, 2009 No Comments   Posted in Buy Lionel trains

new lionel trainI remember buying my very first train set a couple of years back ( a new Lionel Polar Express train set). I just fell in love with the intricate details the first time I laid my hands on it.

Every time that I stare at it now, the reverence that I felt for the Lionel train when it arrived at our doorstep is brought to life. Since it is the first ever train set I bought, it holds a special place in my heart (and my shelf as well) and I maintain it like it was my own child.

Now, I have bought several new Lionel train sets along the way, but the Polar Express remains the dearest to me. I have in fact bought every add-on that I could find on eBay for this baby, and it the years that pass, my favorite Lionel train model remains untarnished and new to my eyes.

How about you? When's the last time you bought a new Lionel train set for yourself? Is it worth the price? Do share. I'd love to hear about other Lionel train enthusiasts.

Leave me your comment!

Do You Know Where to Buy Lionel Trains?

where to buy lionel trainsWell, there are many places where you can buy new Lionel train sets. One is your local Lionel retail dealer or toy store.

Then you can buy Lionel trains online through any online dealer. However, usually prices are high and sometimes shipping costs can be prohibitive, and online stores reputation are not always know beforehand. Although having a local Lionel train retail store can be nice, most people do not live next to one.

I believe that the best deals and variety are found when you buy Lionel train sets on eBay...
