Amongst all the goodies in my Christmas stocking was this light piece of reading by the Goldrush poet Neil Young. What I wasn't expecting on page one was '... opening the sticky tape... Lionel switcher locomotive..'. Seems as though not only is the old Crosby Stills,Nash and Young guitarist a modeller, but is involved in the R&D of the company and has a financial stake. The Lionel connection is mentioned repeatedly and Bachmann (I presume) tacitly slagged.
I wouldn't say I recommend it as a jolly read, but this point indicates that muso/modeller link yet again.
