Rod Stewart in Model Railroader Magazine

Rod Stewart: model train geek? Who knew? Stewart contacted Model Railroader magazine last year, said he’d been a hobbyist for 20 years, and sent them pics of his layout. While he was on tour, he visited the magazine’s offices in Milwaukee. Stewart invited editors to come see his HO scale 23′ x 124′ layout in LA. They did and were blown away by what they saw. The online article has no pics, the magazine article, with lots of pictures and track layout, was in the December ’07 issue of the magazine. The pics above are scans found online.
