Rod Stewart's New Home

Not actually a model railroad news item. But Rod Stewart is moving into a new home. I wonder if a new model railroad is on the horizon. What about his current railroad? Safe in California? I forgot where it is. Why do I care?!

I guess you dont know that Rod Stewart is a HUUUUGE HO train buff. The man travels with his HO layout and even gets a second hotel room just for his trains.

That sounds like it might be apocryphal but he is a huge HO train buff and has an extensive layout. He does a lot himself rather than employing someone to do it for him.

Oh.......no I didn't! Apologies on my curt comment. I had no idea.

Now that is a loyal train fan, Nice to have the money to be able to do that.

The guy is a Train Nut!!

Last article I saw was a visit to George Sellios Train shop & Layout in Peabody Mass.2013 Stewart got the ladies in a Hair Salon on his way to the train shop all worked up and was supposed to be at a concert...but stayed at Sellio's shop for a long time. George produces some of the most beautiful Structure you can find. Stewart has 125ft of Layout in his then CA. home as opposed to George's Famous 30's era which is 1600 SQ. Ft....but now that he has built a larger home, I'm sure he has expanded and was truly inspired by what he saw...plus at 70 he keeps cranking out little rockstars with his Trophy wife...Celebrity AHHHH!!

While I'm not really a music fan of his, I give him props on his other half

I do think it is cool that he himself is actually a modeller with some nice skills.

His layout that I have seen in MR is impressive.

In the article in MR it stated that he was color blind and needed his wife and friends to correct the color of some of the scenes he did.

I don't think he moves his layout around, but he takes models/kits with him and builds them on tour.

I have always liked how he refuses to allow the media to take videos of his layout for commercial attention and will only show it to other modellers!
