Welcome to the advertisement section of our website. The following listings are dedicated to the interesting, unique and sometimes odd advertisements of Lionel trains by The Lionel Corporation. Unlike the annual consumer catalogue -- which built interest and loyalty to their existing customers -- these advertisements were critical for Lionel to expansion their consumer base to new dads and sons.

For the avid Lionel collector, this area of collecting has grown significantly over the past few years. These advertisements were published by the thousands, but few have survived since they were generally printed for newspapers, magazines or other disposable publications. Today, those ads that have survived are usually one of only a handful readily available and have become one-of-a-kind collectables to the diehard Lionel collector.
