Here's a short video where I talk about one of my custom painted Lionel cars inspiring Lionel to make the same car. The Lionel version of this car was a part of their 1995 line and came with the 6-11747 Lionel Lines Steam Set.

This is a series of videos that I made back in 2011 covering the steps involved in creating a Lionel Dealer Display style "door layout". I used Lionel 027 tubular track on the layout. The layout was constantly evolving as I was making it.

This video shows the Underground line on this railway from Victoria to Sambridge.

I've been working on a semi-scale PRR style hand rail project for my layout and made a short video about the project. Working in semi-scale is very relaxing. It doesn't have to be perfect and that's what makes it fun. Hopefully folks will enjoy the video.

Whenever the Silver Rail Club sets up an event, 'Old Glory' is proudly displayed somewhere in the town on our layout! Everyone should know the meaning behind the 'stars & stripes', and the importance of our nation's flag. Model railroading is truly an 'All American' hobby, so share this video with your family, friends, and fellow rail-fans. Please post your comments below.

I made this video for my daughter to show to one of her special-ed kids who loves trains. This is my attic 6 x 16-foot hi-rail layout that is loosely based on the Reading Lines. Equipment is mostly Lionel post war with Lionel MPC and some modern Lionel mixed in.

Enjoy a visit back to JSM's Lionelville for Christmas 2013. Running on the main line is MTH 9401 Berkshire pulling O scale freight cars from MTH. On the branch line, a Lionel 726 Berkshire with 2426W semi-scale tender from 1947 is pulling K-Line Midnight Chief passenger cars.

This is my 2013 Holiday Layout. The layout is 5 x 9 feet. It features a postwar freight powered by Lionel's 726 Berk and an MPC Congressional set powered by my custom painted GG-1. This is the first time a "G" has been on my Christmas Layout. This passenger train is one serious holiday train. The layout is minus the snow this year because we have a one year old Cocker Spaniel who likes to play Godzilla on the layout......more like Dogzilla. Anyway......Enjoy the magic. Happy Holidays!
