ILTT VHS 1
This is the 1st video in TM's I Love Toy Trains video series.

History

I Love Toy Trains was a video made by Tom McComas of TM Books and Video for his son, Jeff, who later started narrating the series. It was later released to the public as "I Love Toy Trains" on VHS in 1993.

The video was a success, and the staff at TM continues to make their ILTT videos successful.

The FBI Warning is the “Producers” variant and not the “Tom McComas” variant.

Trivia

  • This is the only video in which the songs are sung by children, though the songs have no background music.
  • Later versions replace the original 1993 credits with the I Love Toy Trains Closing Theme. The 1997-2002 versions also feature new footage. The 2005 version features still images from the program, while text scrolls downward next to the images. This also occurs on the 2005 DVD of Parts 1, 2, and 3, albeit with still images from Parts 2 and 3 included in there as well.
  • Starting with the 2000 re-release, after the song "Country Jamboree", the train crash and the witch footage were replaced with footage of an Allegheny Steam Locomotive from 1941 (which is a Lionel model from 1999), ready to leave the station. First, a man is heard saying, "CO 1601, you are clear". And then, a muffled voice says something. Then the bell clangs, the whistle blows and the Allegheny chuffs out of the station. It might be possible that they replaced the original scenes with this one because both original scenes might’ve been considered too scary for kids.
  • On the 1993 VHS, the title of this program is “I Love Toy Trains”. In 1994, the casing was changed to say, “I Love Toy Trains 1”, after the success of the program. Although on some copies of the tape itself, it still reads “I Love Toy Trains”.
