Toy Fair NY 2015: Lionel Trains and DC Comics – A Match Made In Gotham


The entire booth was trains. Trains everywhere! I love Lionel trains and this year I got to see the coolest set ever!

Batman M7 LionChief Subway Set!

Toy Fair NY 2015: Lionel Trains and DC Comics - A Match Made In GothamThis set is as gorgeous in person as it is in the promo pictures…


The choice of a subway train was perfect, it really reminds you of the 70’s and 80’s inner city subway lines, like the ones I rode in the NYC of my youth. The set includes 3 cars (BATMAN M7 powered car, ARKHAM ASYLUM Inmates M7 non-powered car, and THE BATTLE M7 non-powered car) which measure 49” connected and enough track for a 40” x 60” layout. The passenger cars have doors that manually open and internal lights. And to top it all off besides the normal engine and train whistle sounds it sports several lines spoken by the Batman himself!
