Welcome to the wonderful world of miniature trains of yesteryear. Enough of those rugged, burly Lionel and American Flyer trains survived that you can still purchase quality investment-grade collector pieces and reasonably priced train items for operation. Whether you're interested in acquiring that special train items that you've been dreaming of, recreating that Christmas layout from your youth, upgrading an existing collection, investing in one of the few highly valued collectibles which you can actually enjoy owning, selling your trains or having them appraised - you've come to the right place!
The Train Source deals primarily in the consignment sale of quality American-manufactured trains made beginning at the turn of the Century through the original Lionel Corporation's demise in 1969. Our objective is to get the trains out of the attics, garages and basements in which they've been stored over the years and into the hands of folks who appreciate them either for display, investment and/or operation.
Enjoy your journey through the wonderful world of "high-rail" railroading.
