Review of Toy Train Revue 2 DVD

 4 of 5 (2)
Robert Suarez's custom-built multi-level layout combines Lionel postwar accessories with hi-rail trains and scenery. Joe Luciani's modern era layout showcases the great Southwest and features Lionel, MTH, and a yard with long sidings. Bill Taylor combines O and S gauges on two interconnected layouts, one is an urban setting and the other, a ceiling-high mountain with tunnels and bridges. Roger Farkash of Trainworx shows how he applies realistic looking ground cover. Visit Grapevine, Texas and see the Lone Star Hi-Railers Model Railroad Club layout built inside a real baggage car. We've talked a lot about hi-rail layouts and how they compare to O scale, but we've never shown a 2-rail O scale layout until now. You'll be amazed at Bill Leider's model-making, scenery creating, and weathering skills. His layout is a slice of railroad life in 1950 and includes scratch-built steam and diesel locomotives.

60-minutes of all-new video acquired in hi-definition and wide-screen, plus 30-min
