Lionel XMAS question
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, November 26, 2003 4:12 PM
I was one of the unfortunate children that didn't have a Lionel train set. Now that I'm in my second childhood, I've tried modeling HO and N. My layouts have been in my basement and I'm just sick and tired of cleaning the track/wheels all the time to get a connection. Of course, part of my problem is cheap equipment. So, I've decided to move to Lionel for something around the tree. Do the rails corrode as much on the larger trains as they do on the little ones? Also, I think I want a steam engine (CP/UP) with sound and steam. And maybe 3 or 4 Pullman passenger cars. Do they still make metal? Since I've given up on an empire, I'd like to invest in something nicer. Is there anyone that can direct me to site that I can find out more about the Lionel product line? What does an engine with steam and sound run? How much are metal cars or can I even find them? Any help would be appreciated...Happy Holidays!

Dear chinatrain99,
