Singer Neil Young to Sell his Model Train Sets at an Auction

Rock’n’Roll artist Neil Young is selling off some of his vintage collectible items at the auctioneer’s block. They happen to be model train sets and classic cars. Famous for his songs “Rockin’ in the Free World” and “Downtown”, Neil Young is a Canadian rocker who is getting on in years.

He has over 230 pieces of a large collection of Lionel trains. Neil wants to auction off these prized sets in LA. Some of them will sell for as much as $9000 per set.

Young is 71 years of age. He sang such hits as “Ohio” and “Heart of Gold”. His passion has always been train sets which he collected with great enthusiasm and zest. He had been doing this since the past two decades.

Neil’s collections had been stored at his ranch in California, according to Reuters. Neil bought the train sets as a way of connecting and bonding with his son Ben who suffers from cerebral palsy. Neil even built a special remote control that allowed the various model trains to be coordinated in their actions.

Singer has said that this hobby allowed him to relax as well after his musical jamming sessions. Part of the funds will be donated to the Bridge Schoolwhich aids kids with physical and speech impediments.
