Valuable Lionel Diesel Locomotives

Lionel as a company took their time when it came to making diesel locomotives. Some of the first diesels produced by the company before WW II were the M10000 and Zephyr models.

1948 marked the beginning of the Golden Post War era for Lionel and some big changes were in store. Lionel introduced it’s F3 diesel model locomotive, made in a joint arrangement with the makers of the actual real life locomotive, General Motors EMD, and also the Santa Fe and New York Central railroads. This diesel was a huge hit and launched Lionel model trains to iconic status as one of the most popular and coveted hobby items or toys.

In this current time, many post war Lionel diesel locomotives are valuable items on the serious collector’s market. Many of the uncommon variants of various diesel trains from actual American railroads can be quite valuable fetching prices into the thousands.

Be it the EMD F3, the ALCO FA or the Fairbanks-Morse, Lionel made a model of it and you can find many of them here on ModelTrainsYard.com. The current state of the financial world has caused many to sell their valuable trains, creating a great opportunity for those looking to expand their collections or perhaps even start one for less than it would cost just a year ago.
