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


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

    Please enjoy these digital photos of some of our most recent F-3 restorations. These locos have been gone over from start to finish and most of them were in very poor condition until we tackled the job. Now, they are virtually indistinguishable from 'mint' post-war originals.  Exact, super sharp paint colors and spectacular silk-screened graphics!  If you have one of these engines in poor to junk condition, never fear!  We can restore them to near -brand new- just call us for details.  Or, you can purchase any of these locos which are ready for immediate shipment!  For details just click "DOWNLOAD CATALOG" here or from our home page, and go to page 4 in the catalog!

   In time we will be listing more photos of our work, including FMs, EP-5s, GP-7s & -9s, steamers, freight & passenger cars, and pre-war items , along with some "before" and 'after' pics! You'll be amazed!

"Here are two wonderful photos of LIONEL's magnificent #2368 BALTIMORE & OHIO F-3 'A-B'.
First up, we have a spectacular rail-side view showing intricate detail and exact period-correct 'staggered spacing' of both the nose and side stripes; the second, a 3/4 view which exhibits the pain-staking attention to detail required to complete the restoring of this museum quality 5-colored model - arguably the most colorful F-3 of LIONEL's post-war history."
