In part 10 made in early to mid 2002, it features a miniature gauge railroad(not the hesston steam museum), accessories includes the new MTH car wash, James Coffey's version of the Rock Island Song, the lahainna kanaphali and pacific narrow gauge railroad in Hawaii, Another James Coffey song: Boxcar Boogie, the history of the Union Pacific's big boy and challenger, and the Pre-world war 2 toy train hall of fame. Best of all Not one OH NO blooper is included on this tape.
In part 11 also made in 2002, it features the story of the New York Central's Streamlined Hudsons such as the Commodore Vanderbilt (Lionel's 1999 model), The 4-6-2 Mercury, the Dreyfuss Hudson, and the empire state express. Plus Jim Coffey's Ghost of the rails. A race car showing with a quick past and present comparisons, an educational segment on the word Merger, 2 Oh No bloopers, one at Steve Scholl's swing bridge, the other where Vinnie the puppet from part 9 runs the Lionel layout blindfolded. An educational segment on the blue comet with Jim Coffey's Choo Choo Blues is included plus Jeff does a magic trick on transforming the New York Central Hudson from Black to Gold. The Easy Secret? Put the 1990 hudson the first frame, and leave the camera alone for swapping this with a 2000 gold hudson. A fast eddie shop segment where an 0-4-0 steam switcher shunts an Unassembled hudson, and visit an aquarium. Another Oh No Blooper at Steve Scholl's MTH layout where a Union Pacific challenger takes the plunge, the postwar toy train hall of fame, another fast eddie shop segment where an NW-2 switcher shunts an Unassembled Santa Fe F-unit, ad the popular Alien Song from James Coffey.
In part 12 made in 2003, there is the very first electric train sets at the start of the 20th century, diesel powered streamliners with James Coffey's song: 900 miles, a quick oh no blooper on the lift bridge, the Pennsylvania railroad's DD1 by MTH, the history of the freedom trains like Lionel's seaboard spirit of '76 U-boats, and k-line's preamble express. But the majority of this segment, is Southern Pacific's daylight 4449, using the K-line model, Jim Coffey's Freedom train song and Clips from the Pentrex show: Daylight freedom special. And 2 layouts: one with a combination of Marklin HO, and Lionel OO Hudsons. The other was a family visit to other McComas members, and yes Jeff did have an oh no blooper himself.
Would I recommend this to Kids and real railfans? Yes, and its also interesting to learn rather than watching a Quarter of a billion Viewed videos of Sesame Street's Elmo's World on youtube.
