Welcome to our website dedicated to The Lionel Corporation's paper products. This section -- which could include many sub-categories -- is focused on their world-famous catalogues, instructional booklets, billboards and general advertising material. For the avid paper collector, these pages provide an extensive list of paper items printed for the consumer on an annual basis, which was critical for the growth and advertisement of their current and prior product line.

From its humble beginning in 1900 to the end of the postwar era in 1969, the original Lionel Corporation printed numerous items each year. Until recently, these paper products have received minimal attention from the collecting community. Our current inventory includes the typical annual consumer catalogues as well as the annual operator & instruction booklets.
