Celebrity Train Layouts: Frank Sinatra - Tom Snyder - Mandy Patinkin
Only 5 left in stock!
In 1995, Frank Sinatra sold his Rancho Mirage, California compound to Canadian businessman Jim Pattison. Mr. Pattison kept the Sinatra estate just as "Mr. S" left it, including the full-size train depot that holds the collection of Lionel trains. TM was granted exclusive rights to film the layout in July 2002.
The layout is reminiscent of Lionel's legendary 1949 showroom layout. Mr. Sinatra duplicated the famous two-level station scene and also has a dog bone-shaped upper level. The action includes trains from all three eras of Lionel production plus the museum-quality setting of the room.
Tom Snyder has the only multi-level, scale-detailed Standard gauge layout we have ever seen, and it's gorgeous. Never before have classics like the Stephen Girard passenger set, Ives Olympian, and Lionel 400E cavorted about in such realistic scenery - mountains, lakes, tunnels and trees.
Accessories include the 840 Power Station, Hellgate Bridge, 112 City Station and Terrace Platform, and a motorized turntable. Even two loops of the Lionel Race Cars are seen on the mountain.
Includes interviews with Mr. Snyder and layout builder John Kitterman.
For Mandy, the affection for Lionel trains started early, and never really faded away, despite embarking on a highly successful singing and acting career. He wanted a layout that would capture parts of his family's life, and that's exactly what he has created (with help from layout designer Rich Roman). The large, scale-detailed layout features a freight yard, two mountains, and exquisite animated carnival, operating ski lift, scale structures, and parallel mainlines with sweeping curves. Mandy operates a mix of the best Postwar and Modern Era Lionel trains, all controlled electronically.
Includes interviews with Mr. Patinkin and layout builder Rich Roman.
