The British tabloid The Sun wrote that it is “Roger a big fan of model railways.” When he heard that the organizers of the festival were looking for a main musical point it is not hesitated and offered to fill the place with The Who. “But he had a special request, he wanted to be behind the wheel of a steam locomotive once that weekend, which would fulfill his dream,” they also wrote at The Sun. In addition to the legendary band, an impersonator of the king of rock and roll will provide musical entertainment at the festival Elvis Presley.

Music will not be the only attraction of the festival National Transportation Trust Vintage Transportation Festival.

We can also visit places that we haven’t been to for years, which is something very special for me.” Daltrey said.
