     Welcome!


Whether you are a long time repairmen, collector, operator or are just new to the hobby, we believe you have arrived at the right place for your Lionel service and parts needs. We have a vast array of Lionel parts spanning Lionel's production period from 1910 through 1995, as well as numerous sources for parts beyond those found in our in house inventory. Whether you're looking for a part for your early #5 locomotive; your standard gauge 390 or 400E; your O gauge Super Motor; your 700E, 763E or even your 1950 773 Hudson, in all likelihood we will have it or know where to find it.

We realize the importance of finding the correct part for your repair. Unlike many of the parts dealers you will find on the Internet, we don't make up bogus part numbers for parts. We do the research necessary to properly identify them. We also use our extensive library to provide a part look-up service for our customers.

As a further service to our customers, we include crossover and transition part numbers often omitted in most publications and within most websites. One such example of a crossover part is the 226E-88 pilot truck. There are three versions, prewar (226E), transition (used on the last production run of the 226E and 1946 version of the 726), and then postwar versions as used on the 1947 and later versions of the 726 and on the 736.

Our part numbering system follows Lionel's Comprehensive Parts Indexes (CPI) and their repair parts manuals. The only changes that we have made are those necessary to distinguish used from new; grade the condition of expensive items like diesel or steam cabs, or denote items that may have undergone changes at Lionel's factory but aren't clearly defined in repair manual pages. As an example, certain prewar part numbers end with an "X" suffix, (an "X" at the end of the part number) indicating that the part has been superseded by a later version that now holds the original part number.

During the transition into the postwar period, the use of the "X" wasn't consistently applied by Lionel. Many times the "X" merely denoted a change from one decal color to another, or signaled an improvement such as the difference between an open top F-3 pilot as opposed to the closed top pilot. We attempt to clarify this in our listings.

Our website layout is one that will evolve as we create the necessary data that will enable you to enter the item you wish to repair, such as a 2333, and have our search engine method return all of the known part numbers for that item. We hope that you will understand that this will take a considerable amount of time to accomplish as no one has ever done this before.

In the meantime, you may peruse our parts listings in our store and use the link at the above left to contact us with your needs when you are unable to locate an item in our store. We will gladly add it to our store for you!
