About this title


Shows and describes toy trains from 1840 to 1955, looks at stylistic and technological changes, and describes major manufacturers

From Library Journal:

Carlson has produced a spectacular visual documentary of toy trains that should appeal to collectors and enthusiasts alike, as well as the kid in us all. This historical journey traces the toy train market from 1840 to 1955. International in scope, it highlights major European manufacturers, such as Bing, Carette, and Marklin, and American companies such as Ives and Lionel. Descriptive captions identify the name, maker, date, and price range of each item. Comments relate stylistic changes and technological advances. Included is a price guide, glossary, and international index to manufacturers. A welcome addition to any public library. Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ. Lib., Johnson City
