Review of Railroads on Parade Model Railroad Extravaganza DVD

 4.5 of 5 (2)
Take a spectacular video tour of Railroads On Parade. This amazing 5000 square-foot model railroad extravaganza, in scenic Pottersville, NY, is housed in a handsome reproduction of an art deco train station. It features more than fifty electronically controlled trains operating on five separate exhibits.

See the sixteen-foot high cloud-filled backdrops, dozens of animations and automations, 2500 feet of track, hundreds of vehicles, large and small bridges, and thousands of trees. You can pretend to be the engineer of powerful steam engines, sleek diesels, electrics, and trolleys. Explore the famed Station Exhibit seen for over twenty years in New York City. Marvel at the 100-foot long Hell Gate Bridge Exhibit including a sixteen-foot long scratch-built model of that legendary bridge.
