March comes in like a Lion, or rather, a Lionel train. Makers of fine model trains since 1900, Lionel has fueled many a young boy’s dreams of adventure on the silver rails.
Of course, they now have to compete with this guy, but somehow I think Lionel will be making scale model choo-choos long after Thomas and his buddies have retired to that big roundhouse in the sky.
Like all trains featured on this page, the Lionel gracing this month’s banner runs on subjective time, with the added bonus of transporting you back in time as it does so.
