ALL ABOARD! The story of Joshua Lionel Cowen & his Lionel Train Company


First Edition 1981, written by Ron Hollander

Interesting story of the founder of the American Lionel Train Company, and of the company itself, particulaly as regards the products, largely 'O" & 'HO' gauge.

Especially interesting as the boss was something of a marketing genius, and his sales methods are looked at in some detail.

Vast numbers of illustrations, including 32 full colour pages showing the wonderful locomotives, freight cars and working accessories which were so exotic when spotted, usually at Christmas, in Gamages High Holborn during the 1950s & 60s. 253 pages in all and Paperback.

CONDITION: close to 'as new'
