The videos work best with a high speed internet connection.
If you have a dial-up or slower connection, start 2 or 3 of them by clicking on the Arrow Right in the center of the clip screen before you go to bed tonight or leave for work in the morning.
When you return to the computer, click the play button and then the little box at the lower right of the viewing screen to enlarge the clip to fill size.
After viewing the YouTube film shorts and TV commercials, bookmark this page and do the same with 2 or 3 more clips tomorrow.
WARNING: If you do this before you go to bed, you may dream of Lionel Trains all night.
ADDITIONAL WARNING: You may also end up spending hours in the attic or storage locker finding your train set and setting it up again in the largest open space in your home. For your wife's sake I hope the largest open space isn't the dining room table. Lionel finally "allowed" girls to have their own trains in 1957. If you are a woman and proud owner of the pink engine with different pastel colored boxcars and caboose, I hope your largest available space isn't the workshop.
We have links to Lionel Trains and Plasticville buildings on eBay at the bottom of this page. You can actually buy the trains and accessories you see in the videos today. You can also search completed items from the search at the left side of the eBay results page to see what your train is worth today.
