This year marks the 60th anniversary since the debut of the Lionel 2333 New York Central locomotive. When railroading began to convert from steam power to diesel in the 1930s, the full-size New York Central was one of the mightiest new locomotives introduced. People were thrilled and captivated by the sight of this magnificent train both for its great speed and for its stunning art deco-inspired design. Unlike their heavyweight wooden predecessors, the passenger cars of the 1930s were often made of stainless steel, making them lightweight, streamlined, and far more spacious than every before. Riders were delighted with the new materials and technology being used, which enabled them to travel at an unprecedented level of speed and comfort. Artist: N/A Size: 4" W
