Review of Great Toy Train Layouts of America Parts 1 through 6

 4.4 of 5 (7)
The Great Toy Train Layouts of America, Part 1
Three fascinating toy train tours: Ward Kimball's multi-gauge layout and collection, which spans the history of toy trains from 1870 to 1940, Ralph Johnson's O gauge layout, which features a 40-foot long mountain range, and Michael Primack's O gauge, where toy trains are maneuvered and switched just like real trains.

The Great Toy Train Layouts of America, Part 2
Part 2 was named by People Magazine as one of the Top Ten Videos of the year. Featured are Stan Roy's amazing O gauge layout and Chuck Brasher's Standard Gauge. Stan operates 32 Lionel Postwar Lionel trains, many of which are rare and valuable, simultaneously on three levels - a world's record performance.

Chuck Brasher has probably the finest Classic Period (1925-1935) layout in the world. He operates a Standard Gauge Hall of Fame - the Blue Comet, State Set, President's Special, the Olympian, and many more.
