Question by Steven S: what is the best way to refurbish lionel trains?
Answer by Tricia
Before you refurbish any Lionel train, you must first understand that refurbishing can greatly reduce the value of a collectible piece. If you’re not concerned with resale and just want an old train to run or look good, then I’d go here. There is a great aritcle in the March 2001 edition of Classic Toy Trains(www.classtrain.com) entitled “8 steps to restore old trains” You should be able to get a back issue of the magazine or the article itself from this site. The article is easy to follow and details the comnplete restoration process for both engines and cars.
