Train driver Alistair Stanyon featured in our pages back in 2000, principally for his extensive collection of ties - he had 322 of them and tried not to wear the same one twice in one year.
His favourite bit of neckwear was one which showed a picture of the London Underground.
The 40-year-old father-of-two from Bridlington, worked for rail company Northern Spirit.
He said: “My children think I am crackers. I wear a different tie to work every day and change it when I get there and on the way home again. People do make a fuss about which tie I am wearing.”
The rail enthusiast added: “I love everything to do with railways, working on them is like a paid hobby.”
