Overall a good purchase. It doesn't go in-depth by any means on every possible Lionel repair but it did a nice job breaking down the pre and post war steam engines with easy to follow instructions. Having not taken one apart before, I now have a much better understanding of how to disassemble and repair or replace worn parts. The DVD also touched on rolling stock and accessories. I would recommend this DVD. Thanks!
