As many of you know, in addition to our model trains, Lionel is also very proud to have our Lionel NASCAR division and we enjoy partnering whenever we can!
With the 2013 NASCAR season upon us, these new NASCAR train sets are ready to hit your track! The six sets, based on our popular Scout Set, feature locomotives and cars decorated for some of the most popular drivers and also include a pair of die-cast race cars that will fit in the gondola. The complete ready-to-run sets retail for $274.99. and are available for purchase through Lionel NASCAR at http://www.lionelnascar.com.
Here’s Michelle Fannin, our Lionel NASCAR marketing manager to tell you more about them:
“We have to admit – it’s pretty exciting to be part of a company like Lionel.
“Since the company’s founder Joshua Lionel Cowan created the first toy train more than 100 years ago, the name Lionel has become synonymous with the railroader hobby and also an important part of the American holiday tradition.
“Now Lionel is building on that incredible history by rolling out NASCAR versions of its electric train sets just in time for the holidays!
“Featuring Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart, each driver train is produced with the exacting detail and superior performance that hobbyists have come to expect from the iconic Lionel Electric Trains brand.
“Each Ready-to-Run Driver Train is based on Lionel’s popular Scout Freight Set and comes with everything you need to set up and run your train right away. Plus, each O-Gauge set is designed with driver-specific graphics and accents so fans can show their support of their favorite driver. The gondola car, for instance, will hold two 1:64 scale die-cast of the driver’s two top paint schemes (cars included).”
