Review of The Magic of Lionel 4-DVD Box Set

 4.5 of 5 (4)
The Magic of Lionel, Part 1
Toys come and go but Lionel trains have endured almost 100 years. Why? What is the magic of Lionel? For the answers, Tom McComas, America's most popular and respected producer of toy train videos, takes you on an action-packed tour of six Lionel layouts and captures the spirit of toys passed from one generation to the next. All Aboard! Our first stop is...

Karl Burkhardt, Gettysburg, PA. - In 1950, Karl's dad demonstrated Lionel trains at F.A.O. Schwarz, and Karl has been hooked on Lionel ever since. His 5x10-foot layout illustrates how you can pack lots of action in a small place.

Terry Johnson, Lancing, MI. - The layout is in progress but Terry's enthusiasm is complete.

Dick Brown, Princeton, IL. - The layout is not big, but oh what dick does with that space.

John Stanley, Rockaway, NJ. - John loves cars and trains. His 18 by 28-ft layout features both.

Ed Mularz, Cleaveland, OH. - You don't have to be a rocket scienti
