And what about the opening scene from "A Christmas Story" where all the little kids are pressing their noses up against the window at the local dept. store?

Lots of Lionel trains running around a couple of loops there, going into a tunnel.
One of them is a model of Union Pacific's M1000 streamliner in yellow and brown.

Stephen King's Sometimes They Come Back, the movie, has a scene where the kid shows Jim Norman a Lionel engine.

England Rod on the Tube!

Our favorite HO-Model Rocker Rod Stewart was on Katie Couric's talk show yesterday. A great tell all interview. It was fun, and when confronted about if he'd have sex, play music, or play soccer (football), he'd choose soccer, he'd said basicly "[none of the above]", and that it was implied that he'd rather model railroad!!! - &

This is a score for model railroaders everywhere! He is still the top celeberty I'd want to meet, and well, I'd say look up the clips on her blog. You have to see it to believe it; now if only we could see his LNER East Coast Main Line layout in England... -

Donovan's Reef.

My dad used to love a movie called "Donovan's Reef", starring John Wayne and Lee Marvin. Funny movie. At the end, we see Lee Marvin lost in the world of his model train setup. He lowers his head down to track level to get the 'real train' effect. He's enjoying himself like a kid on Christmas. Great scene.

Reef -- 1963

North -- 1973

I saw North for the first time a few months back ... really liked it.

My dad told me to watch it, gave a copy to me and my then newlywed bride, telling us how great a movie it was...after that last brutal fight scene, we were like, "Whaaaaaa....?"...just didn't win us over...

"Ain't no 'boes riding my train." SMACKKKK!!! That rope thing was pretty wicked.

England I've been waiting for someone to talk about that!

The first one was a sad fail, but "The Great Train Race", I was UK all the way! To be correct, I was Team Scotsman! James May made it clear, that a Tri-Ang/Hornby Flying Scotsman, can out preform a Gerry freight train. That was the best James May's Toy Story ever!!! -
