Review of Great Lionel Layouts Parts 1 and 2

 4.8 of 5 (4)
Great Lionel Layouts, Parts 1
First stop is the layout and collection of Fritz Von Tagen. His collection features just about every known variation of the Lionel Hudson (and one that isn't known) plus a number of prototypes. 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.

Also included are highlights from the Tom Snyder - Tom McComas CBS-TV Christmas Special, including more on that one-of-a-kind C&O Huson TM presented to TS.

Stars of the show are the multi-gauge layout of Chris Rohlfing and Seth Giem's scale-detailed o gauge layout located in the train bar
