Review of Tinplate Legends in Action Volume 2 DVD

 5 of 5 (2)
If you love colorful, classic tinplate trains in action on elaborate layouts - this DVD is for you.

We visit Chuck Brasher in Grass Valley, CA to get an update on his fine layout and collection. Chuck is adamant about his trains being original, and he has some of the finest examples of tinplate trains and accessories on the planet - the State Set, Blue Comet, President's Special, the Ives Circus Set, Lionel Airplane, Lionel Race Cars, and many more.

Dave Corbett started collecting Postwar Lionel - then he fell in love with American Flyer Standard Gauge. Dave built a fabulous layout, and he is not shy about telling us why he loves American Flyer Standard Gauge.

Then to Reno to see Jim McCarthy's layout featuring the Brute, National Limited, Olympian, Black Diamond, and other reproductions of Standard Gauge classics.

We also show, from start-to-finish, the building of our 46-foot long tinplate layout built right here at TM. Prepare to be amazed - you've never
