Is it possible to personalize Lionel trains?

Question by : Is it possible to personalize Lionel trains?
Is there a way I can personalize a Lionel train online to say something, order it, and be able to run it on a track? Thanks! ^.^

Lionel Trains doesn’t do it themselves… I searched their site: http://www.lionel.com/ . BUT you could do what I had to do with a number of N-scale locomotives and cars to “personalize” them to my railroad:

I ordered lettering and striping from Microscale, used an eraser to remove the OLD lettering (it’s paint), and renamed the yard engines for the “Yamson & Shepherd RR”

Here is the site for Microscale: http://www.microscale.com/

LOOK for an old issue of Model Railroader magazine at your library (or online)… I know they did an article on removing old names and renaming cars just in the last year: http://www.trains.com/mrr/
