Review of World Class HiRail Layouts Part 2 DVD

 5 of 5 (2)
These are not your daddy's layouts. These are layouts where everything is in scale - the trains, buildings, people, scenery, everything - except the track because it is a little higher than it should be. That's why they're called "Hi-Rail" layouts.

In Part 2 we feature four exquisite examples of this new phenomenon which has rocked the world of O gauge railroading.

Bob Irmscher used his background in landscaping to create a magnificent multilevel layout that uses real rocks.

Ron Zweig's impressive layout includes a scratch-built catenary system, subway, superb scenery, and prototypical train operation.

Dennis Peffer uses MTH's DCS system to run lashed-up motive power for longer prototypical freight and passenger trains.

Carl Tuveson's S-Gauge layout boasts the most realistic looking track you'll ever see on a high-rail layout...there's no third rail.

60 minutes of colorful scale trains running through accurately detailed towns, yards, bridges,
