Train Toys


The "Piggy bank" of old was very popular, so that toy banks of many types are common.  Needless to say, trains make a fine subject for a coin bank.  Here are a few examples.

This metal bank was sold under the Lionel name.  Press the fans on top, and it makes various sounds: ringing bell, diesel horn, conductor yelling All Aboard...and it also plays a few lines of "Chattanooga Choo-choo."  Whenever it sounds, it lights up.

This porcelain bank, also sold under the Lionel name, bears the number of a popular Lionel toy locomotive.  Lionel licenses the name to various makers of collectibles.
