Description by

This DVD includes a vast mix of Lionel layout styles from classic tinplate with the colorful operating accessories to the realistic hi-rail with scratch-built structures and ballasted track. Five layout stories are featured along with hi-lites from Tom McComas' appearance on "The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder." Includes:

Great Lionel Layouts, Part 1: Features two multi-gauge layouts showcasing trains from every era. First stop is the layout and collection of former Lionel photographer Fritz Von Tagen. Fritz has numerous prototypes and just about every known variation of Lionel Hudsons. Next stop on the tour is Merle Levitt's layout featuring the California Zephyr Alco PA-1, Rail Chief, Southern Pacific and Santa Fe passenger sets, and other great trains from the modern era.

Great Lionel Layouts, Part 2: Stars of the show are the multi-gauge layout of Chris and Marlene Rohlfing, the massive O gauge layout of Seth Giem and the impressive O gauge layout of Glenn Pinta. The Rohlfings operate O and Standard gauge and store their expansive collection on 2,000 feet of shelves (they could use another 1,000). Seth has over 200 scale buildings he scratch-built and a gorgeous 16-ft suspension bridge. Glenn tells his heart-warming story of how building his layout helped him cope with and ultimately beat cancer.
