VINTAGE LIONEL TRAIN SET. Great shape! See pictures for condition, most everything including the trains are from the 40's. A couple cars are from the 70's, and one is from the 90's. These have literally sat in a box in my closet for years and years, decided they need to go to a good home to be used again. Everything was working great the last time we used them, we had it set up with an upper level track that would cross over the bottom one, it was great fun! There is a layout if you want to copy this setup, or be creative! This set has everything you need! Feel free to ask questions. Shoot me an offer, I'll even consider trades!
