At last! Straight from the Lionel shops! Unveiled in the 1941 Lionel catalog, they were the four so-called "Madison Cars" - Three passenger cars and an observation car. Along with the Scale Freight Cars, they were the Lionel Lines' answer to the demand for more realistic rolling stock to accompany the best locomotives.
For some reason, the set was never produced as shown in the catalog. Instead, four coach cars were offered. The observation car was never produced. Until now.
Each car represents a meaningful locale in the early history of Lionel. The Madison passenger car is named for the street on which Joshua Lionel Cowen was born. The Manhattan passenger car is named for the headquarters of Cowen's Lionel Corporation. The Irvington passenger car is named for the New Jersey town where the Lionel factory was located. And now, we are including the Sager Place observation car. Developed from original Lionel 1941 blueprints, it is named for the street in Irvington on which the factory was located.
