    I saw Neil Young perform at the  H.O.R.D.E. tour in 1997 or 1998. He brings his trains with him on tour! Some of them were on display at the venue.

    That Big Red Button works kind of like the reverb footpedal on a guitar amplifier. I wonder if that’s how he thought of it.

    Hopefully he’ll remember Southern Railway doesn’t require his presence.

    He bought the company from Roy Cohn (sort of) whose uncle had founded the toy company.

    I bet he’s got a Sugar Mountain tunnel on his setup at home.
