An American Tradition since 1900

            There are not a whole lot of names that scream out “American Tradition” like the name Lionel Trains does (except maybe Coca-Cola).
Lionel has survived the test of time and continues to be an American Tradition since 1900. For many families the Lionel trains have been passed down through
 generations like a family heirloom, circling the base of a Christmas tree each holiday season or running through a village in a small world on plywood in a basement somewhere.

Lionel Trains .  .  .  .  like a family heirloom

            Another great survivor of time is Henning's Trains of Lansdale. Henning’s has been serving the model railroader since 1939. What started out as a hobby by Lansdale resident Harry Henning Sr. before WWII repairing toy trains for friends and co-workers had turned into a lifelong career by his son Harry Henning Jr.  Henning’s is a long time authorized Lionel dealer and service center. They carry new & used Lionel toy trains, along with several other manufacturers, many accessories including buildings and scenery supplies and a fine selection of books & videos.

            In the toy train collector world Henning’s is nationally known for its very extensive collection of repair parts for both old and new Lionel trains. In fact, Henning’s is also a manufacturer of several old Lionel replacement parts. Parts molded and manufactured right here in the North Penn area (made in USA).

            Henning’s business has had a boost in recent years by moving onto the internet which helped to open their doors to the world. With their own web site www.henningstrain.com and their own ebay store they now do as much business from the computer as they do in the store. But don’t worry, Harry says he “feels having the store where people can still pick up and handle a train before purchasing or being able to stop by to get one repaired is the most important part. You can’t get this service on a computer.”

            If you haven’t visited Henning’s yet then by all means stop by. They are located on the corner of Penn & Line Streets in Lansdale, across from Memorial Park.  Just look for the model trains running outside in front of the store.  If your family doesn’t have a train then it is time to start a new tradition.
