    Hal,

    Thanks for sharing. I have seen Rod's layout in the Model Railroader magazine. I think it is cool that he builds models between shows, while on the road.

      Thanks for sharing. This is really cool and you can see how Rod is knowledgeable about the hobby by the way he looks at the layout.

      I have my own Rod Stewart story. Back in the late 1980's I was in my LHS and was talking to this guy who was extremely knowledgeable about the hobby. We had a great conversation and was extremely nice. He bought about $700 worth of stuff, which in the 1980's was a ton of dough. I kept thinking to myself, "Where have I seen this guy before? I know him from somewhere." Then he put down his credit card and I saw his name. I thought to myself, "Holy Cow!" (Actually I cleaned up the story, my real thought contained an expletive after the word "holy.") To this day my wife (who is a huge fan) does not believe this story.

            Not my best shot... but I love the sincerity of the moment.

              Hal. Magic moments. Many thanks. I'd like to share your photos with my girl friend.

              Just wish I could catch up with the guy, so I can add him to my web site...

              I would rest in peace after that [:-angel]

                  Well, I'd say he has excellent taste in structure models! That kit and Dexter's Dead End are my own personal favorites.

                    Wow, I wonder who Rod is telling his story to? What a fun day.

                      Rod's probably skiting off to Roger Daltry...

                        A local paper's coverage of the event:

                        http://www.salemnews.com/local/x6023...Downtown-Train

                        Jim from Valencia: I met Rod at "The Train Shop" in Manhattan, many years ago. He was buying the HO Scale model of the NYC "Empire State Express" steam loco. If it'll help with your wife, you can tell her you're not the only one who's met him!

                        It would be an honor to either meet Rod Stewart (again) or visit George Sellios' layout.
