Often referred to as simply “Legs” around AML world headquarters, Lionel has been a model railroader ever since coming down the stairs christmas morning at the tender age of five years old only to discover the train going around the tree had his name on it. Lionel rides his Harley all over North America and spends as much time as possible with his son Peter.
His railroad first appeared on the cover of Model Railroader in February 1994 edition.
Lionel is best known as the builder of the Allegheny and Lackawanna Southern, a 20’ X 30’ HO Scale layout. He also built two project railroads for Model Railroader Magazine: the Northwest Timber Company and the Appalachian Central. Lionel wrote the monthly column Workin’ on the Railroad for MR from July 1998 until May 2005, then continued to serve as a contributing editor for another six years after that.
