Review of Celebrity Train Layouts Part 2 Tom Snyder

 3 of 5 (1)
Tom Snyder has the only multi-level, scale-detailed Standard gauge layout we have ever seen, and it's gorgeous. Never before have classics like the 400E, Olympian, National Limited, and the Hiawatha pranced about in such realistic scenery - mountains, groundcover, tunnels and trees. Accessories include the Power Station, Hellgate Bridge, Terrace Station, and many more - even two loops for the Lionel Race Cars and a Snow Village Christmas scene.

The layout was created by industrial designer John Kitterman. John has designed layouts for Lionel and Neil Young, and incorporated modeling techniques on Tom's Standard gauge normally associated only with scale O gauge. The result - a fabulous, breakthrough layout beautifully photographed by TM. Includes fascinating interviews with both Tom and John.
