“I started collecting model trains as a child – my granddad was already collecting and we were very close. When he passed away, I actually inherited his collection and it’s been growing ever since.”

A collection that starts in childhood can often take on a longevity and meaning that you could never imagine. When Dan looked into the glass cabinet that held his granddad’s model train collection, did he think ‘one day, I’ll have a collection of my own – and even become a train driver!’? Probably not – but that’s exactly what happened.
