 YPSILANTI, Michigan (November 3, 2003) - In addition to the recent record-breaking Carail Museum sale, Richard and Linda Kughn are pleased to announce a second offering from the famed Madison Hardware store in New York City, the world's largest and oldest Lionel train dealer. More than fifteen tractor-trailer loads of rare and desirable Lionel products were transferred from this historical building to the Kughn's storage facility in downtown Detroit in the late 1980's. In addition to the hundreds of thousands of original Lionel train parts in crates and metal bins, the sale features hundreds of collectable model trains, accessories, erector sets and science kits from America's premier toy makers such as Lionel, American Flyer, Marx and Gilbert � just in time for the Christmas season.

Some of the interesting highlights from over 1,500 lots include:

- 1915 Gilbert No. 6 Erector Set - includes original wood case, electric motor and instruction manual in museum quality condition.
- 1930's Lionel Children's Stove & Oven - a fully functional "toy" stove that was pulled retailer's shelves in the thirties due to its life-like heating elements � an extremely rare collectable.
- 1950's Williams Amusement Park Train - powered by a Wisconsin gas engine. Large enough to carry adults or children. Other lots include extra cars and tracks. Perfect for the backyard engineer.
- Collectable Toys & Train Sets - Hundreds of complete train sets and accessories in various gauges, many in their original packaging, from legendary American toy manufacturers such as Marx, American Flyer and Lionel. Large collection of toy science kits from 1950's & 60's.
