Joshua Lionel Cowen founded Lionel in 1900 when passenger lines represented the zenith of technology and sophistication. From plain toy trains to electrical locomotives which ran in circles around Christmas trees, Lionel grew in tandem with the rise of the locomotive, which became the backbone of the American economy from the early 1900s through the 1950s.

The 1960s and the advent of the automobile and airplane marked the end of an era for Lionel Corporation. Though the company attempted to diversify its product line with slot cars and science kits, its catalogs were uninspired and failed to capture the romance in its products, according to Lionel. The 1990s reinvigorated the company with a successful reissue of the popular No. 700E locomotive. As of 2015, the company has partnerships with such brands as NASCAR, Warner Bros., Coca-Cola, John Deere and Crayola.
