Annual National Lionel Day

Papa Ben's Train Place is participating in the 5th annual National Lionel Train Day. This year it is held on Saturday, December 7th, 2019. Not only does this event kick off the Christmas season, it also honors the core of that season, the local hobby shop. In this day and age of buying everything on the Internet, the local hobby shop tends to be forgotten as the place where most of us got our start in this great hobby of ours, model railroading.

Papa Ben's Train Place is the only remaining all-model-railroading brick-n-mortar shop in Houston, Texas. It is the place where on a Saturday afternoon you can go to get the materials and the glue you need to finish that project. It is the place where you can get the latest engine. It is the place where you can buy that train set to get your kids or grandkids started in this life-long and creative hobby.

Lionel recognizes the importance of such a physical location, and wants to support these stores. On December 7th you will be able to support this effort by purchasing a limited-edition National Lionel Train Day box car. These can only be purchased on that day, and they can only be purchased at a participating dealer, such as Papa Ben's.

So, pack up the kids or grandkids, and drop by Papa Ben's Train Place on Saturday December 7, 2019, open 10am to 5pm.
