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 pages devoted to Lionel prewar, Model Products Corporation (MPC), RailScope video camera system, train club cars, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade boxcars and modern era.

The photo links are grouped by category, and arranged by Lionel catalog number within each group. After clicking a link to view a photo, return to this page to pick another photo.

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 Locomotives; Electric Units; Flatcars; Gondolas; HO Scale; Hoppers and Dump Cars; Motorized Units; Passenger Cars; Steam Locomotives; Tank and Vat Cars.
