Richard P. Kughn, former Lionel toy train co. owner, dies at 89

Ann Zaniewski, Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 a.m. ET June 13, 2019 | Updated 1:08 p.m. ET June 13, 2019

Richard P. Kughn once said fine vintage cars were works of art, "like a Picasso or a Rembrandt."

He often treated them as such, doting over their curves and chrome and even opening a museum that displayed some of the most elegant specimens in his vast collection.

The Detroit businessman also loved trains. He ran toy train manufacturer Lionel for about a decade, breathing life into the company and helping introduce a new generation of kids to the hobby he fell in love with as a boy.

Kughn, 89, of Dearborn died Saturday. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Kughn was born in Detroit and raised in Bay Village, Ohio. By age 18, he was back in Detroit working various construction jobs, according to his son, Gary Kughn. He joined the Taubman Co. as an estimator in 1955.
