He doesn't travel with his layout...it is huge and not transportable. He does rent an adjoining hotel room as a workshop when he travels because he does carry his modelling tools and kits he is working on when on the road.

Exactly right. He has two huge footlockers, one for his tools, one for his supplies. He builds in a spare bedroom in the hotel suites.

He enjoys operating the trains, and participated in the design of his layout, but he did hire some folks to build and wire it for him.

Ah, sorry for restating what you said. I didn't notice there was a Page 2 when I hit "reply".

I think Rod has two layouts. The one in California is American prototype and the one in England is British. I suspect the one in California will stay.

Maybe the fun for him is in the running. When you've got that much money you can stick two fingers up at everyone else and do what you like!

He doesn't do that much track work his passion is in building buildings. That's what he takes on the road, building stuff.

Not sure if it was a MRR article, but remember reading that fans occasionally throw building kits onto the stage at his concerts. He's come a long way since panties and bras!
