From Library Journal: This entertaining introduction to collecting toy trains contains a great deal of useful information on a very popular hobby. It includes extensive historical data on toy train manufacturers and discussions of the joys and pitfalls of collecting; recent auction results and the collector values of a wide range of equipment, particularly from the major American toy train companies--Lionel, American Flyer, Ives, and Marx; and helpful lists of auctioneers, associations, magazines, and so on. The book also has problems. Explanations of some important concepts are muddled, the chapter structure leads to repeated coverage of the same material, price listings for the individual items are incomplete, and the text is riddled with errors of fact. Better coverage of much the same material at a similar price is available in Dallas J. Mallerich's Greenberg's American Toy Trains from 1900 with Current Values (Greenberg, 1990).
