A celebration of the toys that started our hobby - the irresistible, fanciful trains made between the two world wars. Three layout stories feature European trains made between 1895 and 1945, Standard Gauge classics in action against sensational Clark Dunham -designed backdrops, and the story of Tom Snyder's layout moving to the New Jersey Hi-Railer's Club. A Tinplate Toy Train Hall of Fame - from the mighty Standard Gauge classics like the Olympian and State Set to small memory-makers like Lionel's Winner Line and Ives clockwork. Plus MTH's Mike Wolf talks about his Lionel Corporation reproductions. All beautifully filmed in wide screen and hi-def.

I purchased this DVD direct from Ole Tom himself at a train show in Grand Rapids, Michigan this past summer. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of it and the extent of which I was able to learn about this fascinating era of the toy train hobby. My only gripe would be the Mike Wolff segments which I could do without, but if you love toy trains of the Standard gauge variety or just good ole tin plate, you'll be very happy with this DVD.
