What is the black and white short where the husband gets crazy obsessed with model trains and the wife is seeking out help but it turns out the guy who she is seeking help from is also into trains?

EDIT: Found it

I like the "ONEL TRAINS" sign in the background of the hobby shop scene. The movie is from 1955; you can't help but wish it had been shot in color. I imagine that would have been deemed far too expensive back then.
In about 1952 or so, the NW2 switcher shown in the dining room scene cost about $ 25.00 at a local Lionel dealer at Christmas time; it might have been a Santa Fe model. Can anyone make out the roadname on the model in the movie?

Scales Modeled: O and some S
Last weeks "Marvel's Agents of Shield" featured a large multi- layered layout as a main part of the story. Basically a three dimensional map. I think they were HO scale.

I showed this to my wife, and when she saw the huge layout, her exact words were "If you did that, you would come home to it burning in the middle of the room." Though, the verdict on the table setup is still out lol.
