Originally comprised of approximately 250 locomotives, over 1000 coaches, with figurines and cars build to replicate working scenes from Shropshire. As a build, the tracks spanned his Sydney house, snaking through the house and around the pool.

John was also known as a Dinky toy collector, in 2002 he sold the largest collection of Dinky toys, with over 16,000 pieces.

Originally from Cheshire, John’s career saw him as the CEO of Vernon Pools, and he founded both New York and NSW Lotto. Eventually living in Sydney, Australia with wife, TV presenter Kerri-Anne Kennerly.

In 2016, John was paralysed after injuring his neck in a fall from a platform at a golf course. This ended his train modelling and career. He died in 2019.
