I read Rod Stewart's autobiography this week while on vacation. He has an entire chapter, albeit a small one, on his lifelong love of model railroading. He is as proud of his diploma (his word) from the NMRA as a Master model railroader as he is of his CBE from the queen herself. When he hears someone call his trains a "train set" he replies, "You don't get one of those for owning a train set." He names several other model railroaders, too. Frank Sinatra Jr., Roger Daltrey and Jools Holland to name several others. He ends the chapter with: Model railroader, Loud and proud. I've been a fan since high school and I like him even more now. Jim in Boston.
