Rod Stewart has been a train fan almost as long as Pete Waterman, there are quite a few celebs that are, they just don't mention it very often, though they don't deny it either.
Pete Townshend for one

Apparently, Sir Rod tried to persuade Roger Daltrey and Jools Holland to donate. Pete Waterman has donated an 'undisclosed' amount.

I hadn't realised that Bruce Springsteen, Tim Berners Lee, Tom Hanks and Michael Palin were also railway modellers. Mind you, I worked with a close colleague for ten years before discovering he was an O Gauge modeller. I suppose it's not something most of us tend to make public.

When I bought my pair of Dinglers (fnarr!) from L.H.Loveless, Lawrie did mention that Roger Daltrey was one of his customers (Loveless makes and sells exquisite and horrifyingly expensive Korean-built brass 0 and 1 gauge stuff)....

Jools Holland's extensive British and European layout was a double feature across Railway Modeller and Continental Modeller only a few months ago.

According to the Maily Dail, they gits were 15 & 16 celebrating their upcoming GCSES by drinking a bottle of vodka. Shows how stupid they are, normal people celebrate after the event. With a bit of luck the scumbags will fail badly

Even Jeremy Clarkson has joined in - today’s Sunday Times. He recommends a return to capital punishment...

Great idea, until it comes to the fact that finding someone who will actually pull the lever. Not a job people would do despite their bravado. Including Clarkson

Well, Jezza has an got an image to maintain and his future income so he probably feels that's the correct response to ensure that. I doubt he gives a toss about the effect on those affected by this mindless act nor why the mindless idiots perpetrated it. Cynical, me ? Max

I'm now retired and to be honest I could do with a top-up of my pension to aid 'slipped finger' syndrome.

I think some of the problems we see today are the result of the oafish behaviour of people such as Clarkson.

Jezza is a just a reflection of society rather than a leader or archetype.
We should probably leave cause and punishment of this particular crime to the powers that be.

Ah, we can get deeply philosophical here, Dave.

How far is TV a reflection of the society outside it or is society a reflection of TV within it? Or is it a process of thesis, antithesis, synthesis, with the synthesis becoming the new thesis and starting the process all over again? A toing and froing leading to a new beginning and the process starting again.

Precisely.
