Review of Lionel Nation No. 5 DVD

 4 of 5 (2)
The spectacular NorthPark Center layout in Dallas will take your breath away. More than 40 Lionel trains take a magical journey across America on over 2500 feet of track - see models of the Washington Monument, the White House, Golden Gate Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Times Square and more. You'll be dazzled by George Werderich's Command Control layout where both Postwar and new Lionel vie for your attention.

Have your cheeseburger and fries delivered on a Lionel train? That's how it's done at The Choo Choo diner in Des Plaines, IL. See the latest Vision locomotives in action and a custom model of the Ferdinand Magellan, the observation car used in presidential campaigns. We visit the New York Central's Museum and compare their real trains with Lionel's models. Plus RailScenes and some surprises.

Shot in wide screen and high definition.
