Five toy train enthusiasts who are cooler than you
2. Johnny Cash
He appeared in a handful of TV spots for Lionel in the '70s (he and Neil Young probably got together to talk trains and stuff) and said it himself: "If anybody loves trains, it's me, Johnny Cash." He wouldn't say it if it weren't true, would he? Also, he wrote a bunch of songs about trains, or that mentioned trains, so there's that.
Reason he's cooler than you: He is the Man in Black. No one has ever called you that.
1. Mr. Rogers
One of the coolest thing about Mr. Rogers was his badass toy-train layout. Come on, admit it -- as a child, you would have killed to have that set-up. Now as a suave, fashionable urban youth, you'd probably prefer one of his killer cardigan sweaters, but deep down, you know his trolley is still where it's at.
Reason he's cooler than you: Mr. Rogers was an inspirational icon to millions of children. You probably haven't even inspired one kid today, have you?
