The train action features rare Hudsons (including three passenger sets at one time!), the UP M10,000, Williams Southern Pacific steamer, Lionel Halloween Set, a Standard Gauge GG-1 set and many more.

Merle Levitt's multi-gauge, multi-level layout features the California Zephyr, State Set, Blue Comet, Rail Chief, SP F-3 Set, plus other favorites from the '80s and 90s. Merle also has a fine collection of toys and Buddy L trucks.

In part 1, there is a first visit to Lionel�s 1986-1993 catalog photographer Fritz Von tagen in Portland Oregon, which includes a collection of Hudsons, and a comparison from the Williams SP 4449 daylight with the real thing. Next there is the multi-gauge layout of Merle Levit which includes when the saints go marching in performed on the calliope, and the Old number 7 song. Finally there is some highlights from the Christmas week 1995 show on the Tom Snyder Late late show on CBS, which contains a trailer for TM�s Lionel DVD box sets between the segments, and Phil Ambrose from A Lionel Christmas, I Love Cat Machines Parts 1 & 2, & I Love Christmas singing a special song.

In part 2, there is a visit to the huge Lionel layout of Christopher & Marlene Rohlfing, which includes a collection of transformers, and a gray table top. Then it�s off to the train barn in Kalamazoo Michigan with Seth Giem. Finally there is an unusual story on Glenn Pinta�s layout throughout his years.
