I recently purchased this book and highly recommend it to anyone interested in collecting Post War Lionel. It has already saved me at least ten times what I paid for it in repair costs. I am thirty-five years old and have never owned a "new" train. I operate all of my father and uncle's old Lionel trains. Most of the accessories I own are Post War era and were purchased at train shows or as used items at local train stores. The older stuff just seems to have more character. That being said, they do not always operate as effectively as possible. Since I bought this book I have repaired a 342 culvert loader, two semaphores, a 140 banjo signal, a 252 crossing gate, and a 221 steam engine. I am by no means a train repair specialist, but this book made doing repairs much easier. The book provides exploded views of almost everything Lionel built from 1945-1969. It also provides parts numbers (as well as original prices for those parts), and explanations for how each item works as... Read more
I would highly recommend this book - even if at times you may need a magnifier to read all the details.

Here is the Low Down on The Book:

1) Reproduced Original diagrams, operating instructions and repair instructions for just about every Lionel Train and Accessory during the period listed.
2) Part Numbers are clearly listed to make internet searches easier.
3) Easy to read index to find the model you are looking for.
4) Tracking down and purchasing the material would cost much more than the price of this book.

You will find yourself either carrying this book around or opening it each time you work on your train set. This is a book of basically original reproductions of Lionel material, so remember they will be dated and not as user friendly as material produced today.

This is a must have for your bookshelf if you are seriously considering repairing or maintaining your collection.

I've recently acquired some Lionel locomotives from 1946-49 and really wanted to know how to look after them properly as they have some minor, but possibly significant, differences from locos made in the 1950's. I found this book absolutely priceless. Since there aren't a lot of these Lionel products left in the world, and a lot of the people who worked on them 50 years ago have gone to that great roundhouse in the sky, information has been hard to come by. It also tells me a lot about the various transformers made in the "glory days" of Lionel.

I have to disagree with some reviewers who have noted that the type is hard to read and/or that the paper is poor quality. I found the type crisp and the paper of a quality sufficient to its purpose. The paper is certainly superior to the coarse paper found in mass-market paperbacks, though not of the very best quality which would have made the book more expensive. The type is small, but making it larger would make the book... Read more
