Crazy Train or Train Crazy?


If you are the mom of a boy under the age of 7 you’ve probably got a boy obsessed with trains. Many of these boys never outgrow their love of trains especially around Christmas. I know this is true of my father and my husband. Here’s a way to put a new train under the tree just in time for Christmas. The folks who make Lionel collectibles have a warehouse right here in Concord, NC. For the past few years they’ve been hosting a warehouse sale and this year’s is coming up this weekend. There is also a preview night for various railroading clubs. They opened a retail store October 20 at their Concord headquarters that will remain year round for the many locals and tourists who visit. 

Here’s the scoop ont he warehouse sale from their website. If you’ve been to the sale before please leave us a comment below and let us know what you thought.
