      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.
