Model railway enthusiast Roger Daltrey is helping local officials in Britain set up a new toy train museum.

The Who rocker has met with council leaders in Kent, England to share his expertise and discuss proposals for a new attraction in the town of Ashford.

A spokesman for Ashford Borough Council says, "Roger Daltrey attended a meeting at Ashford Borough Council with the leader of the council Gerry Clarkson and chief executive John Bunnett about a proposal to locate an international model railway museum in Ashford... This was a preliminary meeting to discuss certain aspects prior to a formal planning application being lodged in the very near future. We were delighted to welcome Mr Daltrey... and we had an excellent and productive discussion."

Daltrey has previously called model trains his "number one passion" in life.
