Chooch Enterprises is proud to announce Model Railroading Unlimited in the DVD home-user format. Painstakingly restored to a digital transfer, Model Railroading Unlimited was recovered from patching together a great number of film copies to make one perfect transfer.
Part documentary, part spoof, Model Railroading Unlimited celebrates the greatest hobby in the world. It’s probably one of the most entertaining films promoting the hobby of model railroading ever made, says producer Mike O’Connell. Chooch Enterprises produced the film in association with Model Railroader magazine in the mid 70’s.
Narrated by Hans Conried and starring Ward Kimball, with original music by Laurence Wright, Model Railroading Unlimited is an uproarious ride through the fantasy, fiction and joy of model railroading. It tells the story of our hero as he plunges headlong into the world of model trains. and there’s no turning back.
