There is not one piece of Lionel equipment made between 1945 and 1969 that cannot be repaired with parts available today unless it was underwater and rusted solid. --John Lalima, East Coast Train Parts

A no-nonsense, easy-to-follow DVD guide to keeping one's model trains in the best possible condition. --The Midwest Book Review

I purchased this DVD to gain some additional insights into repairing and fixing Lionel Trains. I am relatively new into this hobby area and the price was right when I purchased it.

Here is the low down on the DVD:

1) It's designed for beginners to help you get started and understand your way around maintenance and repair.
2) The overall lenght is on the short side and I would have liked it to be a little longer.
3) Some video clips edit out some key steps as they go about the process of cleaning and repairing.
4) There are some very good repair and maintenance tips.
5) The DVD covers how to set up a worksplace and what you will need.
5) This DVD only covers the Lionel Brand (hence the name on the DVD)

I would recommend it for anyone who wants to start maintaining their train collection. It's important to understand the proper way to clean and lubricate the models and this DVD does a nice job in coverning the basics.

Here is a link to a book that may be of interest - I have purchased and also reviewed this book:

I'm so glad this book is available to answer all my repair questions. Plenty of diagrams descriptions and resources. If you want to fix that antique train of yours then the answer is probably contained in this one volume.

I thought I was purchasing a manual, but it is really a video. In this format it is very difficult to use. The content is fairly non specific. I would not buy it again.

It's a great help for your pre and postwar trains and equipment. But what it lacks is wiring schematics or diagrams to help hobbyists with understanding the wiring of their trains and accessories.

I was disappointed with the lack of detail. I was expecting wiring diagrams and more detailed images. This video really only showed how to perform normal maintenance.

This product is very helpful for novice Lionel train operators like me. It gets you off to a good start if you're trying to rehab your postwar Lionel trains.
