Lionel Postwar Trains

The postwar era for Lionel trains is defined as the period from 1945, when World War II ended, to 1969, when the original Lionel Corporation stopped making trains. On this page are photo links to some Lionel postwar production. I also have some pages devoted to Lionel Prewar Trains, Model Products Corporation (MPC) Trains, Train Club Convention Cars and Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Boxcars.

The photo links are grouped by category, and arranged by Lionel catalog number within each group. After clicking a link to view a photo, use the back button on your web browser, or Backspace key on the keyboard, to return to this page.

Use these links to quickly navigate to a particular group on this page: 6464-series Boxcars, Box, Refrigerator and Stock Cars, Cabooses, Cranes and Searchlight Cars, Diesel Engines, Electric Units, Flatcars, Gondolas, HO-gauge, Hoppers and Dump Cars, Motorized Units, Passenger Cars, Steam Engines, Tank and Vat Cars.
