About Us


The S & W Story

S & W, which stands for Shirleen and William, was started over 48 years ago as a small parts reseller for our fellow train collectors with inventory acquired from the original Madison Hardware in New York. Two years later, we applied for and became Lionel Service Center #91. 

Over the years, we became the largest Lionel parts dealer in the southern USA.  We now operate out of New York to be closer to family.  As always, we strive to be the best.

Our inventory includes all parts from Lionel and from manufacturers of reproduction parts. This allows us to repair even the oldest Prewar Lionel pieces.

We offer almost anything the model railroader could desire for an “O” layout. Please check our offerings under “Products”.

We occassionally participate in regional train shows and if we confirm a date we'll list it on our show schedule page.

Due to our travels, the best way to contact us is via email, Trains@SandWparts.com. You will get a prompt reply.

Remember, we might sell many products, but our most important product is Service.

We were featured in a special multimedia web presentation, "Rails of Recovery" for our efforts in a Hurricane Katrina electric train restoration project. Click here to see the multimedia presentation.
