Review of 21st Century Great Train Layouts Volume 4 DVD

 5 of 5 (2)
This production is a tribute to fathers and sons in the O gauge 3-rail hobby.

Kevin Burrow and his Blake have been interested in trains for a long time. As Blake grew older they decided to build an O gauge layout together. Even though they weren't as experienced with O gauge or building layouts, they managed to create an impressive realistic looking, multi-level display where they run five trains at once.

Len Hopkins has a collection of vintage Lionel postwar trains and accessories. He built a 26-foot long layout for his son Jason. The trains and accesories are all original. The 746 N&W J, the Santa Fe 2343 Warbonnet F3, 2340 green Pennsylvania GG1, 2331 blue and yellow Virginian FM are seen pulling freight and passenger cars, many of which are rare variations.

Many years ago, Art Williams introduced his son Jim to model railroading. Jim is now an electrical engineer, and he returned the favor by helping his Dad create a giant, modern model railroad using MTH's DCS
