Lionel Lionchief Train Sets

All the new trains sets made by Lionel are called LionChief sets and they operate with a hand held remote control.  The train sets with  the throttle type transformers are no longer made  by Lionel or MTH trains.  These transformers can still be purchased but must be purchased seperately and are used with larger layouts.  For the simple Lionel train layout, expecially one that a child will run, the remote control LionChief sets are wonderful. Simple to use and safe, the child can remotely operated the Lionel train.  The remote controls the speed, directiions (forward or reverse) and the sounds which are normally the bell , whistle and train talk of the engineers on the train.

Additional Cars

Additional cars can easily be added to the sets.  A common tradition is to add the Lionel Train Christmas Car each year.  Others will add an operating car such as a log dump car to add more interest and play value to their Lionel train set.  It is up to you.  It is your train layout and we are here to help you along the way!
