This DVD Lionelville is only part 1 of the animated story
27 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I stumbled up a DVD Lionelville, new and sealed, at a flea market. I am writing a short notice here to warn anyone else who may discover the DVD somewhere. At the end of this animated movie it says "the adventure continues" and then "Lionelville Destination: Frontierville! coming soon...". That is the end of the DVD which takes the viewer only part-way through the story, probably halfway. This DVD was made in 2009 and a check on the Internet and at Lionel.com shows no further DVDs made for the story. Therefore, you are left hanging. Lionel.com shows the 2009 DVD but nothing further and when one clicks on the link it comes up no information, error. I'm taking that to mean that the follow-up DVD and end of the animated story was never finished. I could be wrong of course, but I see no mention of a second DVD. This DVD and animated story were nicely done with a good story line. It reminds you of Polar Express. There are evil bad guys is this so there are scary parts and not recommended for younger children. I wondered why Lionel would make a cartoon movie about trains, that is too scary for young children. It is about a couple of scientists who develop a surreal experience for people to feel that they are actually on an old time steam engine. A grandfather takes two grandkids, a girl and boy, on the ride. Their father and mother are part of the development team. Bad guys steal the engine with secret circuits and it sets off a reaction that sucks the parents and two of the bad guys into an alter universe of some kind made up of trains and towns, somewhat what it would be like to live in the towns on your platform. The grandfather takes care of the kids and eight years later they meet up with the head scientist and together they set out to get to Lionelville and find the parents while being chased by bad guys. They get away to Lionelville on a special engine and train made by the scientist. When they get there, they begin to look for the parents and the two bad guys are looking for them as well. That is where the part 1 DVD ends. The only thing I can think is that the first DVD didn't sell well, even though well made, and the costs do not allow for the making of a conclusion DVD to complete the story. Perhaps they have it as a project to be done in the future. Therefore, bottom line, if you come across this DVD, enjoy the animated story but know that the story does not conclude on the Lionelville DVD.
