"Singer Neil Young to Auction Model Train Collection"
 
LOS ANGELES Rock singer Neil Young is selling some of his most prized possessions - part of his model train collection.
 
The Canadian folk-rock star is putting more than 230 of his vast collection of Lionel trains up for auction in Los Angeles in December, some with estimated selling prices of up to $9,000, Julien's Auctions said on Thursday.
 
Young, 71, best known for his Woodstock-era songs as well as "Ohio" and "Heart of Gold," has been a passionate model train enthusiast for more than 20 years.
 
His collection and vast layouts at his California ranch took off in the early 1990s as a means of connecting with his son Ben, who has cerebral palsy, Young said.

Thanks to Gary Kazin on the EL list for the heads up.
