Rod Stewart outed himself as a model railway enthusiast in 2007. The singer, who has sold more than a hundred million albums, wrote a fan letter to Model Railroader magazine, proudly enclosing photographs of his 23-foot-wide, 124-foot-long layout. Rod’s railway, subsequently featured in the magazine, is based on the New York Central and Pennsylvania lines of the 1940s, and he calls it the Grand Street & Three Rivers Railroad.
