Frank Sinatra
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
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.

Mandy Patinkin
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.

Total running time: 130 minutes.

I've seen these episode on tv and I never get bored from watching them over and over again. It's nice to have them in my library to watch anytime I want. I recommend these videos to anyone who likes to watch trains. I may be 62 years old but I'll stay young forever with these and other videos like it.
