This Grandpa’s Amazing 280 Square Meter Model Railway Is Worth $357K


Roy James, 72, from the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, started to build his railway in 1990. It started off small but that “one thing lead to another” and now his collection features more than 100 trains and 400 coaches and wagons. Overall, Mr. James has spent £250,000 ($357,000) building his model railway and had to put in his garden shed because his girlfriend refuses to have it in the house.
