Welcome to the on-line home of LEN CARPARELLI'S

We are the oldest and most complete LIONEL® Restoration Company in the WORLD!

Thank you for visiting our new website! While we are still in the process of completing the website, our restoration business is still going strong and has been for over 42 years!
 

    We welcome your business! We repair and professionally restore most LIONEL trains from 1900-1966. Our photo of the LIONEL #2343 1951 SANTA FE F-3 Diesel is one of our most popular jobs! We can paint just about any road name on LIONEL F-3 diesels including very rare items that, if you could possibly find an original would cost you thousand of dollars! Try us! Great work, reasonable prices and we have tremendous references from just about every LIONEL dealer, manufacturer or long –time collector in the business. Our relationship with the now closed MADISON HARDWARE COMPANY, affectionately referred to as “LIONEL SERVICE STATION #1” because of their close and personal relationship with LIONEL founder, J. Lionel Cowen, is well known and documented.

   CALL US with your questions and needs. If it’s LIONEL, we can probably help you! As president and owner of L & L Model Train Co., although I have been creating top-quality LIONEL® restorations for over 40 years now, I am also a LIONEL® train collector, operator and enthusiast, and have been a member of the TRAIN COLLECTORS ASSOCIATION since 1973 - TCA #73-5876. Our ads often say "STATE OF THE ART" because I will personally settle for nothing less than that when tackling a restoration job. Every completed job we send out is a miniature advertising billboard for our company - and I know it has to be better than just "good" because, as is always our goal, 100% satisfaction. So hopefully we'll hear from you soon. All our contact information is below. We prefer phone calls, so we might speak to you and explain our work, and how we might best serve you! We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
 
Len
