Hallmark first introduced Lionel ornaments in 1996 with the Hudson 700 Locomotive. Every year since 1996 Hallmark has produced a lionel locomotive. Some years they have made tenders or additional cars to go along with that years locomotive. They have made tenders, passenger cars, cabooses and other specialty cars. Hallmark has also made limited edition locomotives that are highly collectible. Some of these special locomotives, like the New Haven Diesel from 2008 are hard to find. There are plenty of trains for Lionel collectors available.
