Roger Daltrey Wants To Open A Model Railway Museum

Roger Daltrey is wanting to open a model railway museum. The English singer, musician, songwriter and actor, best known as the founder and lead singer of English rock band The Who is quite interested in miniature trains and when he has some spare tie, he likes working on his own collection. He told Radio 2′s Chris Evans: ‘

‘I hate watching the TV because there’s nothing on and I like listening to the radio. The great thing about model railways is you can be doing a bit of woodwork, a bit of painting, a bit of this, a bit of that, and having fun with your mates and you can listen to the radio.”

The seventy year old along with his friends want to be in celebration of the fact that railways were invented in Britain, as theyw ant to open their own international model railway museum in Ashford, Kent, South East England. He said:

”We’re trying to start a model railway museum down in Ashford, me and a few pals down in Kent. Britain forgets that we invented the railway and it conquered the world. The railway was the first thing to open up the world in a big way for trade. We invented it, and we should be proud of that. The model making side of it, it’s enormous.”

According to Kent Online,

he visited Ashford Borough Council on Tuesday (22.07.14) to discuss the proposed museum, which he hopes to open at the Klondyke Railway Works site in Ashford’s Newtown. A council spokesman told the website:

”Roger Daltrey attended a meeting at Ashford Borough Council with the leader of the council Cllr Gerry Clarkson and chief executive John Bunnett about a proposal to locate an international model railway museum in Ashford. The meeting was attended by the group working on putting together the proposals for this exciting project. This was a preliminary meeting to discuss certain aspects prior to a formal planning application being lodged in the very near future.

”We were delighted to welcome Mr. Daltrey and the other guests, who are all supporting this proposed project, and we had an excellent and productive discussion.”

Alec Baldwin No Apologizing Would Rather Pay Fine

Alec Baldwin will not be doing in apologizing in disorderly conduct. He is a popular American actor, film producer and comedian who has appeared on film, stage and television, and is a member of the Baldwin brothers. The former Beetlejuice actor, who supposedly called NYC a “mismanaged carnival of stupidity”,

says he won’t apologize for his disorderly conduct arrest in May … and he could ultimately end up on the winning end.

Alec was in NYC court Thursday … to face a disorderly conduct charge for allegedly berating officers who stopped him in May for riding his bike the wrong way on 5th Avenue.

Baldwin told the judge … he’d rather pay a fine than say he’s sorry for going off on the cops.

The judge — who told Baldwin he has a short fuse — asked, “Can you stay out of trouble, Alexander?” Baldwin said, “Sure, sure” … and the judge said he’d dismiss the charge entirely IF Alec can keep his nose clean for 6 months.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Rejected Trust Fund Ideal?

Philip Seymour Hoffman said no to setting up a trust fund for children, this is according to court documents. He was an American actor and director, who died at the age of forty six.

An article in The New York Post today revealed that acclaimed Hollywood actor Philip Seymour Hoffman rejected suggestions from his accountant to establish a trust fund for his three children prior to his death. Hoffman the acclaimed actor feared his children becoming “trust fund kids”, court documents have revealed

In February the star lost his life to an apparent drug overdose following his struggle of addiction for many years.

When he passed away he left behind his long-term partner Mimi O’Donnell and their three children, Cooper (10), Tallulah (7) and Willa (5).

The attorney appointed by the court to protect the interests of Hoffman’s children, James Cahill Jr., recently interviewed Hoffman’s accountant David Friedman, who “recalled conversations with [Hoffman] in the year before his demise where the topic of a trust was raised for the kids and summarily rejected by him”.

Hoffman apparently rejected the idea as he was concerned that his children would be considered “trust fund kids”. The actor himself came from a middle class family and worked hard to become one of the most respected actors in Hollywood, so undoubtedly hoped his children would also appreciate the benefits of hard work and determination.

Instead of going into trust funds for his children, Hoffman intended for his partner Mimi O’Donnell to inherit his $35 million estate. O’Donnell, also the mother of his children, began her relationship with Hoffman in 1999. Reportedly Hoffman told the accountant he “simply did not believe in marriage.”

Hoffman will be seen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2, due for release this November and next November, the final films he made.
