Toy Trains & Christmas Part 1|
Toy trains have been synonymous with Christmas ever since a crudely built toy locomotive was placed under some lucky kid's Christmas tree in the mid-1800s. (55 minutes.)
And that's what this video is about - Christmas and toy trains. You will see elaborate Christmas layouts featuring Lionel, American Flyer, Ives and Marx toy trains. You will visit the Christmas layout at the Henry Ford Museum, tour displays featuring Department 56 buildings, the Christmas layout at the Hancock Building in Chicago and the $36,000 layout featured on the cover of Hammachers Schlemmer's Christmas catalog.
There's also a fun Christmas layout starring Santa, Mickey and Pinocchio handcars plus the Mickey Mouse Circus Train. We also visit the Christmas layout at the Lionel Visitors Center and los of other Christmas layouts, both big and small. Rail action includes trains and accessories from every era and almost every manufacturer.
