The tradition of Christmas Train sets under the tree actually began as a promotional ploy. The trains, made by Joshua Lionel Cowan, who would later be involved in what became “Lionel Trains”, were put into store windows to attract customers. Since model trains were very expensive back then, they would be bought as gifts and set up under the tree on Christmas Eve. What began as a marketing ploy soon became a beloved tradition in many homes. Some families have enjoyed Christmas train sets under the tree for generations.

Model trains have become much more elaborate than they were just after WWII, and there are many enthusiasts across the globe. What starts as a gift and Christmas tradition often develops into a lifelong hobby. Today they are works of wonder with all of the bells and whistles one could hope for. They can be models of older trains, or the more modern versions. Either way, the view of Christmas train sets under the tree is one that will always be remembered. Imagine the train whistle greeting the gift recipient as they gaze upon the meticulously decorated train making its way around the Christmas tree, circling the other gifts like a wagon train.

Christmas train sets are appropriate gifts for anyone. Adult men and women can get just as much enjoyment from them as children. It is not uncommon, however, for an adult to buy the train sets for children but wind up making it a hobby of their own as a result. They are unforgettable gifts that bring years of pleasure and fond memories to all who enjoy them.
