In part 7 Made in 1999, it features a visit to a Lego Layout, an 4 Oh No bloopers with Pokemon figures in the barrel loader and in an automobile, A visit to the Grand Canyon railway in Arizona in either December 1989 or January/February 1999, Jim Coffey's Original Version of Counting those railroad cars, Real Steam Locomotives from Berkshire Productions with Jim Coffey's Original Version of the Railroads of America, Learning About Steam Locomotives that served the Streamlined years, with Jim Coffey's popular Streamlining song, and a Look at a Marx Mickey Mouse Set. This was also the very first ILTT video to feature special ILTT boxcars made by MTH.
In Part 8 made in 2000, There is a visit to the Dollhouse Junction Hobby shop and layout, Jim Coffey's Original I've Been Workin' on the Railroad, Learn About Helpers with the word Doubleheading, and see 2 small steam locomotives at Hesston being loaded on the flatbed trucks. Plus an educational segment on the Pennsylvania railroad's T1 Duplex locomotive, Crazy OH NO Bloopers, Jim Coffey's Riding on that New River Train, A look at the Ives Circus Train with Kevin Geise (the Voice of Lenny the Lion from I Love Lionel) as the ringmaster and Jim Coffey's Big Train a Comin'. Plus this was the first video to feature electronic sound effects, Accessory Outtakes, and an Full MTH I Love Toy Trains Set with a dockside steamer, an Animal express hopper, Dino Express flatbed with Van, I Love Christmas & Lionel Boxcars, an ILTT part 2 tank car, and the ILTT Part 6 Bay window Caboose.
In part 9, made in 2001, there is a visit to Dick Brown's layout, the spirit of 76 seaboard u-boat, a history of the New York Central railroad's popular Hudsons, plus a vintage news flash of why Lionel's model is the best, a quick montage of Lionel Hudsons, Jeff calling Joshua Lionel Cowen on the telephone, A James Coffey song "Legends of the rails", Meeting Vinnie the puppet who loves trains at Lou Palumbo's Underground Railroad hobby shop, an Oh No Blooper, the standard gauge toy train hall of fame, with special lyrics by James Coffey, and another oh no blooper.
Would I recommend this? Well despite the electronic sound effects dubbing on most of the parts of these 3 parts, I would say that I'll give it a Green arrow. Plus It'll be more fun to get used to them than watching a Quarter of a billion viewed Videos of Sesame Street's Elmo's World on Youtube.
