|Long out of print, this 1960's publication is back. "Toy Trains Of Yesteryear" puts into one convenient low-priced volume many of the fascinating toy train collecting articles written by Case Kowal for "Toy Train Magazine" during 1953 and 1954. These were ground breaking issues when they were written, and one of the first on collecting Lionel trains. The issues containing these articles have long been out of print, and original issues of "Toy Trains" command collectors prices. At the request of countless collectors Carstens Publications produced this 52 paged softbound edition on Standard and O gauge prewar trains. Includes over 100 B&W photo's. The articles in this book predate the TCA by one year. Most prewar manufactures are covered, not just Lionel; Carlisle & Finch, Knapp Trains, Weeden Live Steamers, Howard Trains, American Flyer, Bing, Marklin, Ives, Dorfan, and Lionel. This is the best book in print covering a complete overview on prewar trains. Old information never becomes invalid.
