We are all superstars now!

A quote from the Daily Telegraph on the interests of rock stars…

Building model railways is very popular among rockers of a certain vintage. Rod Stewart, Neil Young, Phil Collins and Roger Daltrey all have elaborate train sets, with Stewart stating in his autobiography that making the December 2010 cover of Model Railroader was “a major career milestone … getting on the front of Rolling Stone had nothing on this.”

I have to admit that Rod Stuart’s layout is something special.  He takes over a complete extra hotel room on tour, for his modelling workshop.  He seems to mainly build scenery and some most impressive buildings.

Neil Young was part owner of Lionel at one stage, and has a low level layout built for his disabled family.

None the less, sex, drugs and model railways?  Not sure we can live up to that at ESNG.
