Not to be too snarky, Rod it looks AMAZING!

That is when I first heard of it, although I think after the fact but it appears to have been a media blitz into the current issue of the UK publication called "Railway Modeler". On the link above it is sold out -- I just happened to run into the story yesterday and briefly considered buying it (paying the shipping) -- it was not sold out then. I'm checking the local library system, although I suspect they don't have it.

Yes it was. Quite an article. He’s finally finished it after almost 3 decades.
I thought it was interesting that he worked on a lot of the structures while on the road touring. They brought the materials and tools along in huge cases. That is dedication.
And the two ‘friends’ they mentioned were actually full time paid assistants whose main task was to work on the layout. All in all a great effort.

Rod Stewart admits model railroad addiction

LOL

https://www.yahoo.com/news/rod-stewa...140426063.html

Story has bad writing... Rod has shown off his home railroad numerous times over the years (Model Railroading mag has done several issues on it) - still a wonderful layout!

I thought he was 'done' a few years ago after the death of his son?

Yeah, "first time?" I saw it years ago (along with probably everyone here). They're trying to be the exclusive story.
