I always knew there was a reason I liked this man:
He has long been known as a model railway enthusiast — even if at times he didn’t want to talk about it.
But now Sir Rod Stewart’s legendary layout — 26 years in the making — can be seen for the first time in all its finished glory.
…and it’s stunning. Hie thee hence to see it.
I always wanted to do this, only my layout would have been an Alpine scene in Germany, circa 1900. Back in the early 1990s, I even bought period-correct Fleischmann HO engines (three), half a dozen carriages, and built a couple of model houses (also period-correct).
Alas, life got in the way (i.e. divorce, lost the house and therefore the basement) and I never got to build it in. But Rod did, and good for him.
