Model Trains in the News

I made this forum because I think there is some attention devoted to model trains in general in the media, and this is a good place to consolidate those stories for every one to view.

Please feel free to create a post if you see something that you would like to share with the other members.

Looks like a nice addition to the forum TwoRail... I do not have any articles to share here though... You always seem to find the goods ones; I guess that I just do not read enough, LOL...

I also set up a news alert for 'model train, model railroad' so it will send me the headlines each day.

Rod Stewart in GQ

"I've been working my butt off today just so I can get two and a half hours upstairs with my trains. Silly as it may be to other people, that's what's important to me. Have you got a hobby? It clears my mind. It's three dimensional because the trains work, so there's the electrical, there's painting, and there's carpentry involved. I can go upstairs and work on my layout and the whole world can get lost, you know? Every man needs that.

I love how this forum is titled "Model Trains in the News" but the top articles are stories about real trains and people doing stupid stuff....ie stealing trains, stealing train horns.....title doesnt fit the stories or visa versa......reading comprehension........
