"John Goldfarb, Please come home" Has Lionel and Ives trains running around in King Fawz' castle. Crappy movie but fantastic old trains.

Walt Disney was a railroad enthusiast. (What, you didn't know that? )

1951 - Out of Scale

This is a short where Donald Duck isd working on his backyard steam RR and runs into trouble with Chip and Dale. This particular 'short' version is edited down and remastered.

Ahhhh, the cartoons of old. They were so much better than that garbage that fills the air these days!

There always was a good cartoon when we went to a movie as kids. I have no idea when that practice stopped, but it sure was fun.

I've been watching old episodes of The Fugitive on TV. Anyone ever noticed that the train derailment in the opening credits during which Richard Kimble escapes uses a Lionel passenger car? It's kind of comical, but makes sense for the special effects of the day.

"Young Sheldon" on CBS has an O-Scale layout in the garage....Sheldon on "The Big Bang Theory" has shown his trains on many episodes over the years as well as adorning his shelves in his room....

eljefe, thanks for the Fugitive intro. That is definitely a model passenger car.

janedoedad, I really enjoyed the Donald Duck/ Chip and Dale cartoon. Fun stuff, thanks for posting it.

The Fugitive Movie
In the movie the train crash scene was shot using actual trains. It was filmed in North Carolina and they are still there.
Just outside Dillsboro on the old Murphy Branch of the Southern. ( Now Great Smoky Mountain Railroad)

And to get back to the original subject; Leave It To Beaver had a couple episodes with model trains. One was his large Lionel layout he had set up on his bedroom floor, complete with accessories.
Another was an episode where he and his brother Wally visited a girl just so they could play with her father’s “lectric trains”, as only Beaver could say.
That was a nice American Flyer layout.
