I see Rod Stewart made the front cover of Model Railroader.

http://www.trains.com/mrr/objects/images/mrr071201_370.jpg

I saw this on page 9 of the Daily Mail 24/10/2007 it certainly looks the business,
New York Grand Central Station complete with skyscrapers and period hats and coats.
He has this model in his house in the USA.

What interests me, is he has a model of the East Coast main line in BR days in his Essex house. I would like to see that.

His comment of “its appearance on the cover realises a life long ambition and means more to me than the cover of Rolling Stone”

Well said Rod, when railways are in the blood it is there for life.

I just popped down the shops at lunchtime as I thought this was Octobers issue. On closer inspection I now see it was December. This is a bit early for Decembers issue isn't it?

Usually subscribers to Model Railroader get their copy in the last week or two, two months ahead of the magazine issue month, eg, people will be getting the Dec 2007 issue now.

In fact I have just received in the mail, the November 2007 issue of the Hornby mag - quick glance is that it ii as good as previous issues.

Returning to the subject of Rod's railway I just wonder how he has time for modelling with his penchant for the ladies. As an aside does he have to sneak things in?

Regards

The Science Editor of the Daily Mail, Michael Hanlon, reveals in today's issue (25th October 07) that he too is a railway modeller. He points out that to be a railway modeller you have to be a 'semi-competent carpenter, electrician, metalworker, painter, sculptor and designer'.

He comments, among other things, that railway modelling in the USA in particular does not have the 'nerdy' label attached to it that seems to be used in this country by many non-modellers.

There is also a description of the hobbies various (male) celebrities have including metal detecting, stamp collecting, fishing, astronomy and golf - respectively enjoyed by Bill Wyman, Ronnie Wood, Roger Daltry, Brian May and Alice Cooper.

Quite seriously Dave, he is going to be paying someone else to do most of it for him. My guess is that he will just operate it. I wonder what DCC system he uses? Or I suppose does he have DCC? All will be revealed in the Dec issue of Model Railroader.

Maybe, "Come up and see my model railway", is a better chat-up line than we might have thought.

Could be - my experience has been that most ladies are fascinated by a reasonably detailed model railway.

It seems so and all the more with sound. This coming from an analogue 'stick-in-the-mud'! One day... unsure.gif

" Distinguished "? Neil , we don't need the "support " of the likes of those so -called distinguished ?// whatever, to know that our hobby is without doubt the finest ever , neither do we need 'journo's" to justify it .
