reproduction catalogs....
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, April 13, 2001 9:46 PM
Hi Folks....just have one question. I have been away from the hobby for awhile...I like all the prewar trains and while attending a show recently I found a Lionel reproduction catalog put out by Robert E Schnitzer and Frank E Heeg in 1975...I was told there are also American Flyer and Ives catalogs like is a very high quality repro and a great source for information...also it is plainly marked as a repro so everyone knows what it is...does anyone still sell these today?...I would be interested in several and could not help but wonder if they were still being printed. Thank you...

Hi Mark,

I have one of those Pre-war Lionel repro catalogs. I picked it up at a show about 10 years. I don't believe these individual catalog reproductions are still being made.

However, Kalmbach sells bound volumes of reproduction catalogs. I believe they have Lionel (in four volumes) and Flyer and maybe some others. You can find them on this site. From the Classic Toy Trains page select "books" on the left.
