This no reserveauction is for an original "All Aboard at Lionel" publication from October 1956. Lionel produced All Aboard as an internal publication from 1946 - 1959. It featured articles written by and about the employees of Lionel. This publication shows how Lionel fostered a tight knit family environment in the workplace. In addition to articles about subjects like the Neil Hardware Company in Paterson, N .J. , J.L. Cowen himself receiving an award, human interest stories, etc. there are articles about local news, births, engagements, marriages and anniversaries (both wedding and employee), new employees, company sponsored leagues, etc. There is even a classified advertising section! This publication is a wealth of insight into the internal world of Lionel in the mid-1950's.

This 20 page issue measures 8-3/4" X 11-3/4" and features a bright orange colored cover with black & white photo of a fall mountain dirt road scene. This issue would rate about a 7 on a scale of 1-10. Signs of only gentle handling with a little cover wear but no damage. N o tape, stains, tears or writing. There is a slight musty smell to it. Please view the pictures for additional descriptive detail. Please also check out my other listings for additional All Aboard at Lionel magazines that end within a few minutes of this auction.

This was not a widely distributed publication and most of these magazines were discarded shortly after being read. They do not show up for sale very often. Don't pass up the opportunity to add this unusual Lionel paper item to your collection!

Buyer pays $3.50 for S&H. Please note that I will gladly refund excess postage if the estimate provided is $1.00 or more above actual cost.

If you would be interested in selling or consigning all or pieces of your collection please feel free to contact me to discuss.

I have been a member of the TCA for 25 years so you can . I am in the process of thinning out a lifetime train collection that started in the early 1970’s. It includes many rare and unusual items most of which are very high quality in original packaging. Some examples are a boxed 460P Piggyback Platform, boxed 3356-150 Horse Corral Platform, dealer and factory sealed items, as well as many pre and post war boxed sets. Most of my collection is Lionel with some Ives, American Flyer and other manufacturers represented. I do not have a collection list to share at this time.

When practical, multiple items may be sent together to save on shipping costs. All items are carefully packed and typically shipped via USPS priority mail, first class or parcel post within 3 business days after payment clears. I reserve the right to select the shipping method at my discretion. Shipping is not a profit center for me so if I overestimate the cost I will gladly refund the difference of any full dollar amounts. Payment via Paypal is expected within 3 days unless other arrangements have been made. eBay rules require you to inquire about alternative payment methods. TCA member are given special consideration.

I am willing to work with buyers on any reasonable request. My objective is for both of us to have a positive experience. Questions during the auction are encouraged as returns will be accepted only if the item is not as described. Your inquiries are very important to me and I will make best efforts to be prompt and thorough with my responses. However, because train collecting and eBay are not my primary business my ability to continuously monitor and quickly respond to eBay related communications may be limited. Kindly allow for a reasonable response time to your questions. Alternatively, please feel free to call me at – ask for Pete.

I appreciate your interest in my listings. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!
