LIONEL 1939 CONSUMER CATALOG

This is the last catalog to contain all three gauges produced by Lionel; "Standard", "O", and "OO." Of course, "O" Gauge came in three varieties, "O" itself with a 31" diameter circle, "027" with a 27" circle, and "O72" with a 72" circle. This catalog is my personal favorite of all those produced by the Lionel Corporation.
