The journey for Joshua Lionel Cowen started as a designer of model trains. For someone who is remembered for manufacturing toys, his first train, the Electric Express, was not a toy, but an eye-catching display for toy stores. Fortunes changed as he established Lionel Manufacturing Company. Lionel has manufactured model trains and model railroading accessories since 1900, specializing in O gauge model railroad products including realistic models. A similar item, which is its finest production, is being featured in the upcoming Toys, Trains, Western Toys & Model Kits Auction by Weiss Auctions. The item is a clean Lionel 408E brown state set of model trains at the highest estimation of $8,000.
The first day of the auction is relentless in providing toy collectors the best toys among model trains. It features supposedly the 1st English outline live steam locomotive with a hand-painted tin and burner. Also, the first Weiss has ever displayed. These toys are the tier 1 collection worthy of admiration from every toy enthusiast. To find more items from the first day please visit Invaluable
