Greenberg's Guide to Lionel Trains 1945-1969 Volume II: Behind The Scenes - A Must-Have for Train Collectors

If you are a fan of Lionel trains, you will love Greenberg's Guide to Lionel Trains 1945-1969 Volume II: Behind The Scenes, a comprehensive and fascinating book that reveals the history and secrets of the iconic toy company. Written by Bruce C. Greenberg, a renowned expert and collector of Lionel trains, this book covers the postwar era of Lionel's production, from 1945 to 1969, when the company reached its peak of popularity and innovation.

In this book, you will learn about the design and development of Lionel's trains, accessories, catalogs, and advertising. You will also discover the stories behind some of the most rare and valuable Lionel items, such as the Madison Hardware Store, the Girl's Train, and the Super O Track. You will also see hundreds of photos and illustrations of Lionel's products, prototypes, factory layouts, and memorabilia.

Greenberg's Guide to Lionel Trains 1945-1969 Volume II: Behind The Scenes is more than just a reference book. It is a tribute to the creativity and craftsmanship of Lionel's engineers, designers, and workers, who created some of the most beloved and enduring toys of all time. Whether you are a novice or a veteran collector, you will find this book to be an invaluable source of information and inspiration.

One of the highlights of this book is the chapter on the Madison Hardware Store, a legendary place for Lionel enthusiasts. Located in New York City, this store was the main supplier of Lionel trains and parts for decades. It was also the place where Lionel stored many of its unsold and surplus items, creating a treasure trove of rare and unique pieces. Greenberg tells the story of how he acquired the entire inventory of the store in 1975, and how he cataloged and sold it over the years.

Another interesting chapter is the one on the Girl's Train, a pastel-colored train set that Lionel produced in 1957 to appeal to female customers. This set was a flop in the market, as most girls preferred dolls and other toys over trains. As a result, Lionel discontinued the set after one year, making it one of the most scarce and sought-after items among collectors. Greenberg explains the history and features of this set, and shows some of the variations and accessories that were made for it.

A third chapter that will captivate readers is the one on the Super O Track, a revolutionary track system that Lionel introduced in 1957. This track was designed to be more realistic and reliable than the traditional tubular track, with a lower profile, a center rail, and a roadbed. It also had a built-in electrical system that allowed for remote control of switches, signals, and accessories. Greenberg describes the advantages and disadvantages of this track, and shows some of the rarest and most elaborate layouts that were built with it. aa16f39245
