Lionel HO Trains

A Lionel electric train set was one of the first 2 electric toys admitted into the  National Toy Hall of Fame. The other was the Easy Bake Oven.

Vintage Lionel trains can be identified by the couplings. Prior to World War II, Lionel used couplings that resembled hooks.  The Scout series couplers and the more modern peg couplers were used after the war.

The Scout couplers were used on entry level models. These couplings were  G shaped that did not open.  Peg couplers have pegs that can be pulled on the bottom to open.

Lionel toy trains are normally stamped with four numbers, identifying each item. These can be found either underneath or on the side of each car and locomotive.
