Train-mad grandfather spends £250,000 building a giant model railway in his garden shed

train set

(From Daily Mail) This train-mad grandfather has spent £250,000 building an 3,000 square foot model railway in his garden shed – because his girlfriend won’t have it in the house.

Roy James, 72, from the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, started building the railway scene in his garden shed in the 1990s because his partner Hettie refused to have it inside.

Now, twenty years on, his collection – which features more than 100 trains and its own working fairground – is so big that it has spilled onto his back garden.

He said: ‘My grandchildren loved the trains, especially when they were very young. My partner Hettie doesn’t have anything to do with it. She’s quite happy for me to potter about with the trains, as long as they stay in the shed.

‘She won’t have me bringing it in the house.’
