      Boomer said it best, the character Dr Sheldon Cooper eminent physicist and researcher at JPL, also a fantastic train nerd. In this story arc Sheldon is so irritating his friends that one of them decides to get him out of town by using his "atom bomb" as he describes it, a 3-day "Be The Engineer" gift certificate to the Nevada Northern Railroad. When Sheldon tells his girlfriend, Amy Farrah Fowler, she has a hard time picturing why driving a train could be so good , then she has a seriously fantasy in her mind, this scene. In the context of the show it was absolutely hilarious, as his best friend Howard later says, best $4000 I ever spent. 

       

      Here is the full scene

      Love the thread.  Can't think of anything to add (but I'm working on it.)

       

      The Big Bang Theory also did a Napa Valley wine train train episode in season 7, episode 15, which my son told me about.  Also hilarious.

       

       

      As an aside, john, I wonder how many caught your " One of Rod Stewart's ex-wives fell in love with him." reference?

      When he is at the throttle of a speeding locomotive he always lets Superman win...

       

      He counts all rivets... then divides by the amount of rolling stock known to exist...

       

      His combined forum posts have been released as "books on tape"... read by James Earl Jones..

       

      The episode of "Tracks Ahead" featuring his layout won an Oscar, but he was awarded a Nobel Prize because it seemed so much more appropriate...

       

      He is!.....

       

      The most interesting man in model railroading.

      Everything he models is real. Unfortunately.

      I blame Tom for starting this up again..........

       

      Whenever a child wanders into his layout he practices Solomon like wisdom and splits the little varmint in half

       

      His model railroad budget is underwritten by Loyd's of London and includes an international credit rating of AAA

       

      His glad-hands don't just lock together they Dap... (if you don't get this one go here.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giving_dap )

       

      Whenever he puts a new engine on the track for the first time all of the church bells in his hometown are rung

       

      Every year hundreds of thousands of high-school cheerleaders have to go through reality training because the ones in his generation refused to accept his invitation to the prom and are now old, fat, divorced, soccer mom's with low self-esteem working minimum wage jobs. (wow that one was dark).......don't be giving me the stink eye, everyone that was called nerd and laughed at by the pretty girls secretly hopes that is how they turned out.

       

      He is!.....

       

      The most interesting man in model railroading.

         Well, as long as it's back.....here's my five favorites:

       

            His Napkin Sketch Plans have appeared in architectural digest.

       

            His personality is so magnetic, he cannot use Kadee couplers.

       

            He turned down Warren Buffet's offer to buy his model railroad....twice. (That one was mine!)

       

            His work trains do actual work.

       

            His MU cables include connections for Champagne.

       

      .....and one particularly appropriate honorable mention: He never has to edit his Forum posts for grammar or spelling. Ha!
