If it were not for one man’s vision and creativity, the world would never have realized the joys of owning and operating Lionel trains. Joshua Lionel Cowen, whose namesake celebrates its centennial year in 2000, will forever be remembered as a pioneer in O-Gauge railroading. In honor of his dream, we have commissioned the Lionel Centennial Boxcar. With its classic styling and rich decoration, it is sure to be treasured for many years to come. Help celebrate a true “Standard of the World” with the Lionel Centennial Boxcar.
