The company's devotees disagree over the date of incorporation, as the official paperwork gives a date of September 5, but the paperwork was not filed until September 22, more than two weeks later. Initially, the company specialized in electrical novelties, such as fans and lighting devices. Pre-war era (19001942) Lionel's first train, the Electric Express, was not intended for sale to consumers, but rather, as a storefront display. Delivered in December 1900, it operated on a brass track and was powered by a battery and a motor Cowen originally intended to use in an electric fan. Cowen hoped to use the public's fascination with railroads and electricity to capture the public's attention and direct it to the goods for sale. Members of the public started approaching store owners about buying the trains instead, prompting Lionel to begin making toy trains for the general public. Lionel ended up selling 12 examples of the Electric Express." "Bringing joy to the youth of America has been the good fortune of Lionel for twenty-six years. Our products have helped them to keep pace with the development of electric traction while providing healthful fun and education." Most pages are in full color. The technical drawings (motor specifications, trucks, gears, etc. ) are generally in black and white, but in wonderful 3-D.
