A selection of model trains from record producer Pete Waterman's collection are to auction at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury in London on April 16.
The collection, comprising around 100 hand built locomotives, is valued at close to £1m ($1.4m).
Waterman explained: "I never ever thought about cost when commissioning these models - it was all about true quality, which ultimately is the only thing that matters.
"No expense was spared and I see these models as being akin to works of great art."
