Here’s something you don’t see every day! This gorgeous collapsible model railroad layout was custom hand-crafted in Germany by a husband and wife team in the 1950s for the Hill family.

It has been in the family now for almost 70 years and has provided holiday cheer and excitement for children of every age in the family for generations. This unique HO Scale train layout is durable enough that it will continue to provide the same for many more generations!

In this tour, we get a look at how the layout is constructed, hear about its history from owner Harry “Bink” Hill, and also get to see lots of vintage Marklin equipment running on the layout as professional garden railroad track foreman Curtis Hill carefully switches the blocks to avoid collisions as multiple trains speed around on this unusual layout.

Add to this an introduction of several pieces of rare vintage Marklin equipment by superstar of prototype and model railroading, Kevin Hill, and you have a unique video tour unlike anything else you will see anywhere!
